Archbishop visits Chester to pray for unity


On 21 January 2018, the Archbishop of York is preaching at Chester Cathedral as part of the Week of Prayer for Christian Unity. The service is at 3.30pm. Everyone is welcome to attend.

The Week of Prayer for Christian Unity is traditionally observed from the 18th to the 25th January – the octave of St. Peter and St. Paul.

Material for 2018 was produced in the Caribbean and uses Exodus 15, a song of triumph over oppression, as the motif of the Week of Prayer. The themes of the daily material raise some of the contemporary issues addressed by the churches of the Caribbean. Resources can be downloaded from the bottom of the page at:
