The 110th Week of Prayer for Christian Unity runs from Thursday 18 to Thursday 25 January 2018 inclusive. The theme for 2018 is ‘That all may be free,’ for which the resource material has been produced by Caribbean Christians.
The resource material addresses contemporary issues facing the churches of the Caribbean – human rights abuses, human trafficking, modern-day slavery, addiction to pornography and drugs, the debt crisis, domestic abuse and violence. The Caribbean Churches are working together to heal the wounds in the body of Christ. Reconciliation demands repentance, reparation and the healing of memories. The whole Church is called to be both a sign and an active agent of this reconciliation. More information and free downloadable resources can be accessed here.
Wolverhampton Church Shelter
Wolverhampton Church Shelter for the homeless opened its doors on 6 December 2017. Based at the Broad Street site of the Tabernacle Baptist Church in Wolverhampton, the shelter offers overnight accommodation for up to 20 rough sleepers per night. The initiative is a collaboration between Grace Church and Tabernacle Baptist Church. This winter the shelter is also inviting clients to sign up to ‘Pathway of Hope,’ with the aim of addressing the longer-term health, accommodation and employment issues which face many of the homeless.
