Women’s World Day of Prayer in Bexhill

Frances Hargan from Bexhill reports:
On 2nd March the Women's World Day of Prayer service was held at St. Martha's, Little Common, Bexhill in the morning and at Our Lady of the  Rosary, Sidley, Bexhill in the evening. This was a beautifully themed service of "Let Justice Prevail", prepared by the women of Malayasia, and encompassed ethnic and traditional music.

Placards showing life experiences were displayed on the altar and we were given time to reflect on the hardships suffered in the region.  Anne Barry gave an inspiring talk about the Malaysian women. Afterwards, we discussed the evening over tea and refreshments.
