NWCT is an Intermediate Body of Churches Together in England covering the whole of Norfolk and those parts of the Waveney area around Lowestoft.
Our work is to enable Christian denominations to work together to spread the Good News that Jesus Christ, the Son of God, came to us to rescue us from the penalty of falling short of God’s standards and to offer us his gift of life in Jesus.
The Week of Prayer for Christian Unity is traditionally celebrated during the octave of St Peter & St Paul which runs from 18th to 25th January each year .
The theme for January 2019 is based on Deuteronomy 16:18-20, ‘Justice, and only justice, you shall pursue…’
Resources can be found on the Churches Together in Britain and Ireland website at https://ctbi.org.uk/weekofprayer
There will be services across the region.
