Week of Prayer for Christian Unity
Each year, in the time between the Ascension of our Lord to Pentecost, Christians are reminded of Jesus’ prayer for his disciples that “they may be one so that the world may believe” (John 17.21). Hearts are touched and Christians come together to pray for their unity. Congregations and parishes across Australia and all over the world, exchange preachers or arrange special ecumenical celebrations and prayer services. In the Week of Prayer for Christian Unity, we join together to pray for each other, our country and the mission given to each of us from Christ.
