Ecumenical service for World Day of prayer on January 20 at Knox Presbyterian Church

Every year, Christians across the world gather in prayer for growth in unity. To celebrate the 2019 Week of Prayer for Christian Unity, local churches will be holding a bilingual ecumenical service on Sunday, January 20 at 3 p.m. at Knox Presbyterian Church in Vankleek Hill.

The Order of Service has been prepared this year by Christians from Indonesia whose population of 265 million includes about 10 per cent who are Christians following various traditions. In the world as we know it today, corruption, greed and injustice can bring about inequality and division. Moved by these concerns, the Christians of Indonesia believe that the theme of justice spoke powerfully to their situation and needs. The worship service will emphasize the importance of doing concrete actions of unity, justice and mercy in our personal lives and in the life of our communities.

The collection will be used to help fund the Breakfast Program in all local primary schools.

Refreshments will be served and everyone is welcome to attend.

Knox Presbyterian Church is located at 29 High Street in Vankleek Hill.
