Welcome to Women's World Day Of Prayer
Many parts of the UK have snow forecasted for Friday 2 March, the Women’s World Day of Prayer. Some organisers have asked what they should do – below are some suggestions.
Try to hold your service as planned on Friday 2 March if at all possible.
Remember weather forecasts can be wrong so wait until at least Thursday before making a final decision.
Please postpone the service rather than cancel it. It would be a shame to waste all the preparation and many charities benefit from the offering made at the service.
If you postpone, then use as many channels as possible to promote the new date. Don’t forget to email the office – firstname.lastname@example.org – if your service is listed so that the details can be updated.
If you do cancel or postpone the service, then please consider those who don’t get the message. Some people will turn up on the day. In keeping with the welcoming spirit of Women’s World Day of Prayer, please try to make appropriate provision for them.
Finally, remember that you know your local conditions. Trust that God will guide you to the right decision!

PS Don’t forget to tell everybody about your prayerful
actions – by word of mouth and on social media.
Let’s make a thunderclap for God’s creation!
