This Service will take place on Friday 3rd March and is run by Churches together in Hedge End , West End and Botley as part of the World day of prayer. The idea of World day of prayer is that identical services take place in the same 24 hour period throughout the world. The theme for this years service is “I have heard about your Faith” This year the service has been arranged by the Women of Taiwan ,In recent years the Women of Zimbabwe Slovania , Suriname, The Philippines, Cuba, The Bahamas and Egypt have arranged the service. In previous years these arrangements have been known as the women’s world day of Prayer.
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.
