WORLD DAY OF PRAYER
The ‘World Day of Prayer’ will be held on Friday 6th March in Brimscombe C of E Primary School, Brimscombe at 10am. All are welcome.
The service has been prepared by the women of Zimbabwe and the title is “Rise! Take Your Mat and Walk” - referring to Jesus’ words to the disabled man as recorded in St. John 5: 2-9a.
The people & indeed women of Zimbabwe have endured hardships over many years. Through conflicts they have tried to keep home and hearth together whilst their menfolk have gone away to war or died through ethnic cleansing or Aids and, in peacetime, gone to find work.
Christianity was brought to Zimbabwe by missionaries just before colonial rule and school, hospitals & churches were built; however, some children in rural areas cannot afford access to schools and higher education.
