Week Of Prayer For Christian Unity

On Sunday 20th January, marking the week of prayer for Christian unity, churches in Limbury, Luton, met together at St Augustine's Anglican Church for a shared afternoon service for the first time in many years. Members of the congregation led prayers and readings, Rev David Fleming from the Baptist church spoke, and Rev Jairo Nyaongo led the worship. It is hoped this will once again become an annual fixture.
