St John's is hosting this year's service on Tuesday 24 January at 7.30pm. We look forward to welcoming members of the other churches in Newcastle to this ecumenical service. (Light refreshments will be served after the service in the Millennium Room in the Parish Hall adjacent to the church.)
The Week of Prayer for Christian Unity takes place between 18th–25th January – the octave of St Peter and St Paul. This year’s theme – Crossing Barriers – is based on 2 Corinthians 5:14–20 and originated in Germany, drawing on its experience of reconciliation and integration. A fragment of the Berlin wall, in the shape of a cross, is being used as a symbol of the need for reconciliation.
