Women’s day church service

PRAYING for Egypt will be the subject of this year’s Bognor Regis area service for Women’s World Day Of Prayer.

The service will be held at 3pm on March 7 at St Thomas a Becket’s Church on Church Lane, Pagham. The speaker will be Eileen Rhodes.

All are welcome to attend the event which has the theme of streams in the desert,

Women’s World Day Of Prayer area secretary Janet Tapping said the service took place annually on the first Friday in March worldwide.

“This year’s service has been compiled by Christian women in Egypt who, co-incidentally, are now having a very difficult time,” she said.

“Any support we can offer is much needed. Last year, 98 people attended and we hope to better that.”
