Churches call for prayer before Brexit date


Source: CTE

The Presidents of Churches Together in England, together with partners Churches Together in Britain and Ireland, are calling the churches to prayer as we approach the date when the United Kingdom is scheduled to leave the European Union.

From Wednesday 27th March to Sunday 31st March the Presidents urge churches in our nation to find ways to pray, and to enable church buildings to be opened for any in their communities seeking a space for prayer.

Churches Together in England supports every opportunity for local churches to pray together and urges Churches Together Groups and other expressions of Christian unity to take hold of this moment to pray together for our nations.

This builds on other calls to prayer from member churches over recent months and reflects the increasing urgency of the moment as Brexit approaches.

In particular, we suggest that as the Presidents of Churches Together in England and other church leaders meet to pray at 10.30am on Saturday 30th March in central London, churches throughout the nations may wish to join in similar expressions of prayerful concern for the future of the peoples and nations in the British Isles and Ireland, and beyond, during that morning.
