Global Day of Prayer in six Norfolk venues

GDOP451For this weekend’s Pentecost Sunday, May 27, the Global Day of Prayer Event will be held in several different venues around Norwich and Norfolk rather than one main venue.

At each venue different churches will combine to have a united service centred round their version of the Prayer for the World; this will unite them with millions of Christians around the world as they too pray for God to move in our world and change lives. There will be special prayers for the Queen and for the Olympics.


The Global Day of Prayer is held around the world annually on Pentecost Sunday. For three years the Norwich & Norfolk Global Day of Prayer was held in Norwich Anglican Cathedral and last year on the Millennium Plain as part of Celebrate
