World Day of Prayer

World Day of Prayer
1st March 2019 2:00pm

St Mark’s Church, Leeds Road, Harrogate HG2 8AY


The service lasts an hour and will be followed by light refreshments. It will be attended by His Worshipful the Mayor of the Borough of Harrogate, Councillor Bernard Bateman MBE and Mrs Linda Bateman.                   

The service has been written by the Christian women of Slovenia, a successor state of the former Yugoslavia.  Slovenia has been Christian since the days of Charlemagne in the eighth century, although religious conviction was persecuted under the socialist regime (1945-91).  The theme of the service reflects the importance of sharing a meal, with friends, with family, with strangers and outsiders.

Although the service is organised and led by women, this is essentially a day of prayer for everybody, demonstrating our solidarity with our sisters and brothers in other countries.  All are welcome to attend.
