An open invitation to the annual World Day of Prayer service
This year’s World Day of Prayer service, organised by the Anglican Church of Paphos, takes place on Friday 1st March at St. Stephen’s Church, Tala, commencing at 2.00 pm.
Each year the theme of this global event is prepared by women in a different country. Women of Slovenia have prepared this year’s service and they encourage us to reflect on the barriers they have faced since the end of the Second World War when their country was part of the former Yugoslavia, a Marxist socialist republic. They share the challenges they have met and the hopes they have for the future.
The Day of Prayer is celebrated in over 120 countries. It begins in Samoa and prayer in native languages travels throughout the world finishing in American Samoa some 38 hours later. A warm welcome is extended to everyone to attend the service – friends, family, visitors, ladies and gentlemen, to share this experience.
Very grateful thanks and many congratulations to everyone involved with the Fayre this year.
It was a wonderful occasion and a truly memorable day, the stalls looked fantastic and so many people commented on the excellent quality of the goods we had on offer. Despite the dreadful weather on the Tuesday the sun shone on us for a short period when the Fayre was open and although the attendance was 20% down on last year we still managed to make money for our charities and I am delighted to be able to tell you that we hope to distribute in excess of €8,000 to the list of worthy causes. Thank you all for making it possible for us to help others who are far less fortunate than ourselves.
Annual Dinner Dance
Good food and good company make for a very good night out.
This is the verdict of the 70 guests who attended the annual ACP Dinner Dance at the Kamares Club on Friday 9 November. The event included a superb buffet, a spectacular raffle and raised nearly €1,400 for church funds.
