Christian Unity Week – Edinburgh Invitation…

While this is a genuine invitation due to the magic of Zoom and You Tube, it is also reassurance that the quest for Christian Unity is alive and well and living in Edinburgh.

I am writing on behalf of Edinburgh Churches Together to invite you to our annual Ecumenical Service of Prayer and Worship to mark the Week of Prayer for Christian Unity.

Each year a committee from the Faith and Order Commission of the World Council of Churches and the Pontifical Council for Promoting Christian Unity in Rome, who have ultimate responsibility for the Church Unity Octave, invites a national church to choose a theme and prepare worship materials for the week. For 2022 the churches in the Middle East have chosen the story of the Magi “We have seen his star in the East”.
This year the service is being held at the City of Edinburgh Methodist Church, 25 Nicholas Square, Edinburgh EH8 9BX on Monday 24th of January 2022 at 7.00pm.
Fr. Jock Dalrymple will be the guest preacher.
I hope you can attend. However, if you cannot attend in person the service will be live-streamed on You Tube and you can also access the service using Zoom.
Please read the paragraph below carefully.
Yours sincerely in Christ,
Paddy Ferry.

This year’s Week of Prayer for Christian Unity service will take place at 7pm on Monday 24th January 2022 at City of Edinburgh Methodist Church, 25 Nicolson Square, Edinburgh EH8 9BX. In order to follow the current government guidelines regarding COVID 19, all those attending should take a lateral flow test before attending and wear masks (unless except) at all times when in the building. Once seated, please remain in your seat unless directed otherwise. Contact details for track and trace purposes will also be required as you enter the church. With appropriate distancing for safety there is less capacity in the building than normal. To keep everyone as safe as possible you should only attend if you are feeling well and not demonstrating any symptoms of illness. We very much look forward to seeing you there!
