I ask not only on behalf of these, but also on behalf of those who will believe in me through their word, that they may all be one.


As you, Father, are in me and I am in you, may they also be in us, so that the world may believe that you have sent me.


-- John 17:20-21, NRSV

Week of Prayer for Christian Unity

At least once a year, Christians are reminded of Jesus’ prayer for his disciples that “they may be one so that the world may believe” (see John 17.21). Hearts are touched and Christians come together to pray for their unity. Congregations and parishes all over the world exchange preachers or arrange special ecumenical celebrations and prayer services. The event that touches off this special experience is the Week of Prayer for Christian Unity.

Traditionally the week of prayer is celebrated between 18-25 January, between the feasts of St Peter and St Paul. Click here for worship and background material for the Week of Prayer for Christian Unity 2015.
