Rise, take your mat and walk
Women, men and children of all ages are called to ‘Rise, take your mat and walk’ to join this day of prayer. Women of Zimbabwe have prepared this year’s service and they encourage us all to reflect on the difficulties and unrest that have plagued their country over many years. They share the challenges they have met and the hopes they have for the future. They encourage us to ‘Rise, take your mat and walk’ with them as they continue their often turbulent journey towards full reconciliation.
During March 2020, people will gather to celebrate the service prepared by the women of Zimbabwe. The Day of Prayer is celebrated in over 170 countries. It begins in Samoa and prayer in native languages travels throughout the world — through Asia, Africa, the Middle East, Europe and the Americas – before finishing in American Samoa more than 36 hours later.
Do join us at the Lee and Stubbington service, you are welcome to stay for refreshments after the service.
