A SERVICE will be held at Holy Trinity Church in Henley next Friday (March 6) to mark Women's World Day of Prayer.

The annual day is an international, interchurch event designed to give a voice to women from different parts of the world as they express their hopes and concerns. This year an estimated three million people in more than 170 countries will gather to observe the day of prayer, using an order of service written by Christian women from the Bahamas and translated into more than 1,000 different languages and dialects. In Britain alone more than 5,000 services will be held.

The day will begin when the sun rises over the island of Samoa and continue until it sets off the coast of American Samoa 35 hours later. The theme of the service is taken from St John's Gospel, chapter 13, verses 1-17: â??Jesus said to them, "Do you know what I have done to you?"

The service at Holy Trinity will begin at 1.30pm and will be followed by refreshments.
