Please note that the service on 2nd March has been postponed due to the weather conditions. A new post will be created giving details of new arrangements when known.

This Service is run by Churches together in Hedge End and Botley as part of the Women’s World day of prayer. The idea of Women’s World day of prayer is that identical services take place in the same 24 hour period throughout the world. This year the service has been arranged by the Women of Suriname . In  recent years the Women of The Phillipines, Cubu, The  Bahamas and Egypt have arranged the service. The Women’s World Day of Prayer was started by a group of Methodists and Presbyterians in America in 1887, the first service in England was held in 1932.

More details of the National Movement can be found on there website at
