Marking Racial Justice Sunday in Bewdley

Published: 14th February 2024

Service leaders gathered at the front of St Anne's Church for their racial justice serviceSt Anne’s Church in Bewdley marked Racial Justice Sunday on 11 February. The recommended theme this year was migration, and the congregation prayed for the 100 million people displaced from their homes across the globe, roughly half of whom are children.

Licensed Lay Minister, Robert Barbour said:

The congregation at St Anne's church in Bewdley listening to the racial justice service"We find the materials provided by Churches Together in Britain and Ireland to be excellent, and suitable for a wide variety of service types and church traditions. The service we put together used a small fraction of what is available.

"This is the third time we have held a service on racial justice and we feel it is important that we challenge ourselves and pray for reconciliation near to home and across the world. We especially remembered the 1.4 million displaced people in Rafah in Gaza who expect further attacks, and we lamented the relative silence of the world church as to their plight."
