Alton Webteam: February 2016
On Friday 4th March the Women's World Day of Prayer service takes place in Alton at the Salvation Army, off Market Square at 2pm. The service this year has been prepared by the Christian women of Cuba on the theme 'Receive Children, Receive Me' and the speaker is Helen Jesty, who is Anna chaplain to the elderly.
The service is an opportunity to learn something about life in another part of the world, as well as being a part of this act of worship which sweeps across the globe. It's translated into 60 languages and 1000 dialects, and over 6,000 services will be held in the British Isles.
The day begins as the sun rises over the island of Samoa and continues until it sets off the coast of American Samoa, some 35 hours later with everyone sharing in the same service. All are welcome to attend and following the service there will be a chance to chat over a cup of tea.
