The Women’s World Day of Prayer, an annual event, was celebrated in Luton on Friday March 7.
More than 170 women, from different Christian denominations, took part in the three services, held at Blenheim Baptist Church in the morning, Stopsley Baptist Church in the afternoon and The Holy Cross Anglican Church in the evening.
The service each year is prepared by women from a different country and then celebrated by Christian women across the world. This year it was women from Egypt, who had prepared a dramatisation of the longest recorded conversation in the Bible of Jesus and the Samaritan woman at the well.
Luton women attended a day in January to prepare for this occasion, when they took part in a Bible Study, learnt a dance and also heard about life in Egypt from a locally resident Egyptian.
This annual service is greatly valued by Christian women every year.
