Welcome to Women's World Day Of Prayer
May was a busy month.
The Y-Pray? Conference on the first weekend was a huge success. Many thanks to our inspiring keynote speaker Emily Owen, our rousing worship leader Helen Pollard and our hilarious illusionist Steve Price. Hopefully we now have a few more younger women eager to be involved in our wonderful movement. If any of them come from your area, please, please, please do all you can to encourage them – as they are our future.
At our May meetings, we reviewed the results of the consultation on whether or not to change our name. The result was overwhelmingly in favour of change. So: from now on, we are World Day of Prayer: a women-led, global, ecumenical movement – in line with our original title and with the rest of the world. Thank you to everyone who voted and for your comments.
Please note that our website and e-mail addresses are unchanged.
We also made arrangements for the launch of the 2019 service in July. This one is rather different from the last but I am sure that you will find it equally challenging in its way.
Also being launched in July: our new website!
