United service for week of prayer

South Carrick Churches Together held a united service for the Week of Prayer for Christian Unity at 7pm on Sunday January 22 in Girvan North Parish Church.

The theme for the Prayer for Christian Unity week in 2012 is ‘We will all be changed’, and this theme was reflected in the service.

The theme comes to from churches in Poland, which have reflected upon their own experience as a nation, and in particular how, as a nation, they have been changed and transformed by the many upheavals of their history, and sustained by their faith.

The group say change is also at the heart of the ecumenical movement - when we pray for the unity of the church we are praying that the churches that we know and which are so familiar to us will change as they conform more closely to Christ.

Representatives from churches in Girvan and from the surrounding villages took part in the service.
