This year’s World Day of Prayer service in Cumbernauld will take place on Friday 3rd March at 7.30pm in the Church Hall of Our Lady & St Helen’s Church, Achray Road, Condorrat.
The service this year has been written by the Christian women of the Philippines and is based on Jesus’ story of the workers in the vineyard who all receive the same pay, prompting the question “Am I Being Unfair to You?” (Matthew 20: 1-16)
The Day of Prayer is for everyone.
You will all be made most welcome at the service.
