World Day of Prayer

This year’s World Day of Prayer services will take place on Friday (March 6), at the Baptist Church, at 11 a.m. and 7.30 p.m.

The morning service will be led by members of the Melville South Church. Refreshments will be served from 10.30 a.m.

Services will also be held in most sheltered housing courts and Dorward House, etc., at 2 p.m.

The service has been written by the Christian Women of the Bahamas and the theme is taken from the Gospel of St John, chapter 13, verses 1 to 17; Jesus said: “Do you know what I have done to you?”

On Friday an estimated three million people in more than 170 countries will observe the day of prayer, translated into more than 1,000 [sic] different languages and dialects.

The day will start when the sun rises over the island of Vanuatu and continue until it sets in Alaska 35 hours later.

All are welcome to attend the services in Montrose - men, women and people of all ages.
