The theme of the Week of Prayer for Christian Unity (WPCU) for 2022 is ‘We Saw His Star in the East‘.

WPCU is traditionally celebrated between January 18 and January 25 – originally the octave of St Peter and St Paul.

The story of the Magi visiting the Holy Family in Bethlehem is a very familiar one. The Magi have sometimes been seen as a symbol of the world’s diversity – different religions and cultures – that come to pay homage to the Christ-child. The story might therefore represent the unity of all created that God desires.

Churches Together in England have many materials and resources that have been prepared by the churches of the Middle East. These resources are offered by the Christians of the Middle East conscious that the world shares many of the travails and much of the difficulties that it experiences, and yearns for a light to lead the way to the Saviour who is the light that overcomes darkness.
