During the week of January 18–25, 2021, congregations from all Christian denominations will come together in observance of the annual Week of Prayer for Christian Unity.

As part of this observance, Westminster will offer a twenty-four hour prayer vigil. It is very simple to agree to a 30-minute time period by using the button below.

Prayer suggestions are provided here.

Begun in 1908, the Week of Prayer for Christian Unity is celebrated each year in cities and towns across the country and around the world. The theme for the 2021 observance is “Abide in my love… you shall bear much fruit” (John 15:1-17). The theme and text for each year’s observance of the Week of Prayer for Christian Unity are chosen and prepared by representatives of the Pontifical Council for Promoting Christian Unity and representatives of the World Council of Churches. The international texts are developed, adapted, and published for use in the USA by Graymoor Ecumenical and Interreligious Institute.

You are invited to join this prayer undertaking. We hope you will find this to be an opportunity to pray with ours and the worldwide Christian community for reconciliation and unity.
