King’s Lynn churches unite in week of services
From January 18-25 King’s Lynn churches will come together for daily services hosted by eight churches across the town to pray for Christian unity and reconciliation.
Churches Together in King’s Lynn are preparing for the Week of Prayer for Christian Unity from Wednesday, January 18 – Wednesday, January 25 when a series of daily services will be held in churches across the town.
Peter Coates, Secretary of Churches Together in King’s Lynn said: “The theme for this year is ‘Reconciliation: The Love of God Compels Us’ based on 2 Corinthians 5:14-20. Resources for the week come from the Catholic Church in Germany following the refugee crisis and have been made into a booklet called ‘Crossing Barriers.”’
The week will begin with a half hour service at King’s Lynn Minster on Wednesday, January 18, 12.30pm-1pm led by Canon Christopher Ivory. It will conclude the following Wednesday, January 25 at All Saints Church at the same time with a service led by Father Adrian Ling.
During the week services will also be held at King’s Lynn Baptist Church, the Salvation Army, the Gateway Church, the Church of St John the Evangelist and the Church of the Annunciation.
On Sunday, January 22 the London Road Methodist Church will host an evening service starting at 5pm with Rt Rev Alan S Hopes, the Roman Catholic Bishop of East Anglia preaching on the theme.
