CHURCHES across Felixstowe are taking part in a week of prayer with events at different places of worship for people to pray for the world, their community and enjoy times of personal reflection.

The week – which runs until Friday, January 25 – is organised by the Churches Together in Felixstowe movement.

Today, Sunday, January 20, there will be a Unity Service at 6.30pm at St John’s Church, Orwell Road, when people from the different congregations and denominations will contribute.

Opening prayers for the prayer week took place at St Felix Catholic Church, Gainsborough Road, with mass followed by a Christian Aid lunch.
