Ecumenical Chain of Prayer 2022

Covid permitting, the annual Ecumenical Chain of Prayer will take place in person on Thursday 20th January 2022 (as part of the Week of Prayer for Christian Unity) from 10.30am to 4pm. It will take place in a new location – St Joseph’s chapel in St John’s Cathedral in Norwich – at the kind invitation of the Dean, Very Revd Provost David Paul.  https://www.sjbcathedral.org.uk/ 

We are also invited to arrive early & join with their 10am Mass.

The theme in 2022 will be ‘We Saw His Star in the East…’ & the resources have been prepared by the churches of the Middle East.  These usually, but not exclusively, provide the focus for our prayers. They are now available to download from the CTBI website https://ctbi.org.uk/resources-for-week-of-prayer-for-christian-unity-2022/

If your church / Christian group would like to take a 15minute slot – between 10.45am & 3.45pm, please get in touch!  Another innovation we are introducing is to offer you the option to take the whole 15minute slot just for your church or organization – or, as before, to share it with another group.    Please let us know your preference.

If you would just like to drop by as an individual, you will also be most welcome. We all look forward to being able to join together in person again to collaborate in prayer, one of the many areas we have in common.
