Week of Prayer: 6-13 April 2014
The Archbishop of Canterbury and the Archbishop of Westminster will jointly visit two projects as part of their initiative this Lent to encourage people to pray for the work churches do to support those in their parishes and beyond.
Downloadable prayer resources for the week can be found at the bottom of this page.
Archbishop Justin Welby and Cardinal Vincent Nichols will visit:
Giuseppe Conlon House – a house which offers a place to stay in a Christian community for men who need a home whilst they work through immigration processes.
Rainbow Centre in Folkestone, Kent - A Christian charity that works to support families and individuals through times of crisis, and to invest in children’s early years and well being.
During that week Archbishop Justin and Cardinal Vincent will give also give thanks to God daily for this essential act of service and they will pray for his blessing on the work of churches serving people in need.
Their hope is that by joining together in prayer and encouraging others to join them they will foster the work of the church in strengthening communities and helping those in need across the country.
