World Day of Prayer (Friday 1 March) is a global ecumenical movement led by Christian women who welcome you to join in prayer and action for peace and justice.

An ecumenical prayer service takes place at St Mary's Episcopal Cathedral in Palmerston Place, Edinburgh, at 11:30am. The service will be livestreamed here.

This year the prayer service has been written by the Christian women of Palestine on the theme ‘I beg you to bear with one another in love’.

They ask everyone to bear with them in love and to pray for an end to all human suffering and to stand with them to achieve security and peace for all people around the world.

There are World Day of Prayer services taking place in churches of all denominations across the Archdiocese. Find out more here. For resources and more visit
