Week of Prayer for Christian Unity

In 2020, the Week of Prayer for Christian Unity will run from 18th – 25th January. The material has been prepared by Christians in Malta and Gozo with the overarching theme ‘Unusual Kindness’.

Hospitality is a much needed virtue in our search for Christian unity. It calls us to a greater generosity to those in need. The people who showed unusual kindness to Paul and his companions did not yet know Christ, and yet it is through their unusual kindness that a divided people were drawn closer together. Our own Christian unity will be discovered not only through showing hospitality to one another, but also through loving encounters with those who do not share our language, culture or faith.

Members of all the churches in Saltcoats are invited to St Cuthbert’s halls for an afternoon of hospitality on Sunday 19th January at 3:00 pm. Volunteers are sought to help welcome visitors, provide baking and serve tea. Please speak to Sarah if you are able to help.
