The Week of Prayer for Christian Unity is being held from 18th to 25th January, as usual. Several Churches may be happy to have people from other CTOD churches visiting their "Zoom" services. Look at the Church websites in the list of Churches and contact them to get the Zoom meeting details. Other churches regularly stream services on line using YouTube or Facebook or have prayer groups on Instagram. Churches Together in Britain and Ireland have issued a downloadable programme "Abiding in Christ", devised by the monastery of Grandchamp in Switzerland, which provides prayers, readings etc for every day of the Week of Prayer. The theme that was chosen, “Abide in my love and you shall bear much fruit”, is based on John 15:1-17 and expresses Grandchamp Community’s vocation to prayer, reconciliation and unity in the Church and the human family.
January 24th 2021 will feature the annual re-affirmation of our CTOD Covenant by member churches, which will also form part of the 5th Sunday service on 31st January which will be held by Zoom.
