Women's World of Day of Prayer 2017
Women's World of Day of Prayer will be celebrated on Friday 3rd March. This year's service has been written by the Christian women of the Philippines, a country which has been in the news recently. The title of the service is ‘Am I being unfair to you?' and it highlights some of the injustices suffered by the ordinary people of that country, particularly the women.
Women's World of Day of Prayer is the largest ecumenical movement in the world. The service written by the Christian women of the Philippines will be used at ecumenical gatherings of men and women in 170 countries and islands throughout the world. Details of services in Cornwall so far as they are known at present are given below.

Note that these services are equally as interesting and thought-provoking to men as to women. Just because a service is written by women doesn't mean that men cannot enjoy it and learn from it too!
There are normally also services at Helston, Lanner, the Lizard, Porthleven and St. Ives but I have been unable to get details of these.
Information about Women's World Day of Prayer in general and about some of the 5,000 service that will be held that day in England, Wales and Northern Ireland can be found on the website www.wwdp.org.uk
