The Week of Prayer for Christian Unity is traditionally observed from the 18th to 25th January: the octave of St Peter and St Paul. However, some areas observe it at Pentecost or some other time.
Each year the international resources are adapted by the Britain and Ireland writers group and extra material is often written, such as meditations for each of the eight days. Material for 2019 originates from the churches of Indonesia.
The resources highlight issues of economic injustice and how religious pluralism can face challenges in the face of radicalisation. The theme for 2019 is 'Only Justice' based around Deuteronomy 16:18-20, 'Justice, and only justice, you shall pursue…'.
Resources are available to order or download in a variety of formats and are available in English, Welsh/English and Irish.
