Member churches of Wisbech Churches Together gathered in St Peter’s church to celebrate diversity and unity – with each bringing something from their expression of faith to share.
Readings and reflections from various churches accompanied by songs on the organ, the Salvation Army brass band and The King’s Church worship band were all shared on Sunday January 24.
Members celebrated past successes of Wisbech Churches Together such as the Foodbank, the Ferry Project and the work of Christian Aid.
Matthew McChlery, Chairperson of Wisbech Churches Together said: “There is strength and power in unity. Together we can achieve so much more than if we try on our own. We celebrate the Week of Prayer for Christian Unity with churches across the world, as well as with a wide variety of churches from within Wisbech, knowing that as The Body of Christ the Christian church can and will make a lasting impact for good in our community and the world.”
The Week of Prayer for Christian Unity is an international Christian ecumenical observance kept annually between January 18 and January 25.
