This year, on Friday 4 March, people around the world celebrated World Day of Prayer with a service prepared by women in Cuba.
Foothills St Martin’s Uniting Church, in Forrestfield, hosted the service for their area in which the participants came from several local churches.
The theme for the day was ‘Receive children, receive me.’ Foothills St Martin’s Uniting Church provided a preacher, Robert Watson; a speaker, Rita Lennon, a librarian; and others who carried symbols and provided morning tea.
There were about 55 people present and all gave thanks that they were able to learn about, and contribute through the Bible Society to work in Cuba.
The service was alive from beginning to end with music, symbols, overheads and participation.
