Each year in many countries one week is set aside by a wide range of churches to pray specifically for the unity of the churches. The idea was born in 1908 - which means that 2008 is the centenary of the global initiative of the Week of Prayer for Christian Unity. Click here for some history and background concerning this initiative.

In the Northern Hemisphere the Week of Prayer for Christian Unity is celebrated from 18 to 25 January. In Australia it is in May, often linked to Pentecost.

This year: 4-11 May
In 2008 the Week of Prayer for Christian Unity will be celebrated in Australia from May 4-11. As usual, the materials being prepared by one country (this year it is the USA) have been adapted for the Australian context. Click here for details of materials.
