Week of Prayer for Christian Unity

The traditional date for the Week of Prayer for Christian Unity is 18-25 January (and is the date in the northern hemisphere). Those dates were proposed in 1908 by Paul Wattson to cover the days between the feast of St Peter and the feast of St Paul, and therefore have symbolic meaning.

In the southern hemisphere such as here in New Zealand where January is a vacation time, churches find the week leading up to Pentecost is more timely. It too is symbolic for the unity of the church. For 2021, the date for the Week of Prayer for Christian Unity is 23-30 May.
The following resources will assist communities in planning local worship during this important week.
