Join us for the Diocesan Day of Prayer on 30 June

17th June 2022

You are invited to join in a day of prayer in our diocese on 30 June. It will be an opportunity to gather together, or individually, to pray for Bishop Michael and the new chapter in the life of Bath and Wells his appointment will bring, and to pray for ourselves. It also offers a chance to think about and to pray for the challenging times we are all facing; the cost-of-living crisis, the war in Ukraine and the financial concerns of the Church and our diocese.

Bishop Ruth said, "The Day of Prayer will also be an opportunity to consider the generosity and abundance of God’s grace and gifts to us alongside the need for us to face the future with realism and hope."

Join in

You can join in the diocesan Day of Prayer in any way you choose, you can come together as a church community, a prayer group or alone.
