This year the world day of prayer was hosted in St Giles and All Saints at Orsett on Friday 3rd March. The programme was written/devised by women in Taiwan.
It was well attended including some people from The Welcome Church who have recently started meeting in the Churches Centre for their worship.
The service was followed by a lunch including; soup, bread, fruit, pineapple biscuits, banana cake, cassava crisps, seaweed crackers, rice cakes and wasabi cashew nuts among other things. The cashews were however something of an acquired taste.
Next year’s world day of payer will be written/devised by women in Palestine and held on Friday 1st March in Horndon on the Hill Methodist Church.
