Background to #Pray24Brum

The 18th – 25th January is marked by many churches across the world as a Week of Prayer for Christian Unity. It is a time when we pray with and for each other across our Christian traditions.

Now in its 4th year in Birmingham we have shared in this international week of prayer and celebration of our faith by coming together in one of the city centre churches for 24 hours of prayer. Each hour is led by a different church, group of churches or Christian organisation from across the city region, and all are invited to come and pray with them: whether that means calling in for a few moments, staying in prayer for a few hours, or coming and going throughout the two days.

This year the 24 hours of prayer is spread over two days from 8.00am to 8.00pm on Friday and Saturday 19-20 January 2018. St Martin in the Bulll Ring has chose the theme as: Discovering the heart of God in the heart of the city.

#Pray24Brum is an opportunity to come together and pray with one another, sharing something of the beauty of our own tradition as well as discovering something new. United with one another we turn together towards God, praying with one heart for our churches, our city and our world.

On 19th and 20th January you can follow the prayers by receiving regular updates on our dedicated facebook and twitter pages.
