Together: Brexit Prayer Initative
19th March 2019
Brexit will be a cause of celebration for some and lament for others, but one thing is clear – we can no longer continue to define one other by how we voted in the referendum. The time has come for communities to come together to serve the common good, in our nation and in our relationship with the rest of Europe.
Whether or not it yet becomes the day on which the UK leaves the European Union, 29 March will be a significant moment in the national consciousness.
Together with the Archbishops of Canterbury and York, the Bishop of St Albans is inviting churches to consider joining a national prayer initiative of five days, and hosting a tea-and-prayer drop in session on or around Saturday 30 March:
. To get together as a community
. To chat over a cup of tea
. To pray for our country and our future.
To assist with this, the national Church has produced a set of prayer resources and some suggested conversation starters, as well as locally printable publicity materials and graphics that can be shared on social media. These are available at churchofengland.org/together
Churches are encouraged to do all they can to encourage prayer and conversations within and across communities during this time.
