world day of prayer update

World Day of Prayer

The programme and worship for 2021, has been written by Christian women from the Islands of Vanuatu, in the South Pacific.  

The service planned for Friday March 5th this year, has been postponed until Friday June 25th 11.00 a.m. at St Gregory’s Seaton. 

Sadly this decision was taken in the light of the current Covid restrictions, and in the hope by June, we will once again be able to worship together with other churches in Seaton.

The theme for  the programme this year is ‘Build on a Strong Foundation’, based on Matthew’s Gospel Chapter 7: V 24-27. 

World Day of Prayer is a global Ecumenical movement led by Christian women who welcome you to join in prayer and action for peace and justice. 

The web page is well worth a visit to find out more about the history of the Vanuatu islands.  The homepage opens with a message from the Chair.  If you scroll down to the bottom of the page, click on Introducing Vanuatu and then the video link.

Please put the date in your diary, and pray we can all worship together once again.

world day of prayer


Friday 4th March 2021
This year St Gregory’s is due to host the above service at 11 a.m on 4.03.21. 

The worship until last year, was previously known as Women’s World day of Prayer.

Due to current Covid restrictions, unfortunately, I cannot at present confirm if this service will go ahead at St Gregory’s.

I am in contact with Jill Harvey from Seaton Methodist Church, who heads up and coordinates the worship. Hopefully, I will be able to confirm the service will go ahead as planned.

Please put the date in your dairy, and continue to pray for our church to reopen for collective worship as soon as safe to do so.

Thank you, Mary Casey.
