The World Day of Prayer service for 2021 will be at the Bribie Island Church of Christ on the corner of Foley Street and 5th Avenue, Bongaree, on Friday 5 March at 1.30pm
Since 1926 Christians, of all denominations, from around the world have met on one day a year to pray for the needs of women in different countries Each year since then, people of various races, cultures and traditions meet together in over 170 countries.
This year, the Christian women of Vanuatu have written the program with the theme “Build on a Strong Foundation”. The country has many challenges such as: inadequate drinking water and sanitation in rural areas, malnutrition among children, gender based violence affecting women and girls, and a lack of women elected to the national parliament.
We welcome the members of our community to join us in prayer and action for peace and justice with a focus on the people of Vanuatu. Our guest speaker is Roger Bawden who has worked in Vanuatu for nine years and has a very good understanding of the people and their needs.
After the service, afternoon tea will be served in the Church Hall. Everyone is invited to stay for refreshments
