News, Events and Special Services

Week of Prayer for Christian Unity For more than a century the Week of Prayer for Christian Unity has been celebrated on 18-25 January, the 8 days (‘octave’) up to and including the feast of the conversion of St Paul the Apostle (described in the Acts of the Apostles, Chapter 9). This year, local churches of different denominations are once again marking the Week of Prayer by holding short services in different churches each day of the Week, to which all are invited. The services will follow this year’s theme suggested by the World Council of Churches: Justice and only justice you shall pursue (Deuteronomy 16:18-20). The detailed programme is:
• Friday 18th 12 noon at St John of Jerusalem, Lauriston Road, E9 7DH
• Saturday 19th 11am at Frampton Park Baptist Church, Frampton Park Road, E9 7PQ
• Sunday 20th 4.00pm Main Ecumenical Service at Hampden Chapel Assemblies of God Pentecostal Church, Lauriston Road, E9 7EU
• Monday 21st 9.30am at St. Michael’s
• Tuesday 22nd 2pm at St Joseph’s Hospice, Mare Street, E8 4SA

• Friday 25th 12 noon at St. Columba’s Barge, East Canal Side, East Bay Lane, E20 3BS (Go along Eastway towards Stratford, passing St Mary of Eton on your left. It is a big white barge on the canal just by the bridge on your right-hand side.)

Tea/coffee/juice are served throughout. Children must be accompanied by an adult.
