The Week of Prayer for Christian Unity is upon us again. Prepared by the Council of Churches in Germany, this years’ theme is Crossing Barriers and is based on 2 Corinthians 5:14-20.

For Christ’s love compels us, because we are convinced that one died for all, and therefore all died. And He died for all, that those who live should no longer live for themselves but for Him who died for them and was raised again…


As Churches Together in Leek & District, all are welcome to come share midday prayer (12:00 midday – approx 12:30) at Trinity Church, Derby Street from Monday 16th to Saturday 21st January 2017. On Sunday 22nd January, there will be a United Service held at All Saints Church, Compton at 4pm.

Please do come along and join us in unity – even if you can only make one service!
