Candle of Hope - National Call to Prayer 


Churches Together in England would like to have a national time of prayer at 7.00pm each Sunday.  They suggest that instead of a candle in the window (as not many people will be out to see it), people could keep a prayer poster in their window.    See below for the posters - click on them to enlarge and then print.  This follows on from LIGHT A CANDLE - see under the posters.

To view the posters:  Scroll down on the image or click the right hand top corner of each for a larger version.  If image does not appear after first few seconds, as happens occasionally, simply refresh the page

 We are praying for you, praying for everyone

On Mothering Sunday, 22 March, Churches in England invited people to light a candle of Hope in the windows of their homes on Mothering Sunday as a visible symbol of the light of life, Jesus Christ, our source and hope in prayer.
