Special prayers will be held in Cleckheaton this week as part of a global service.

St John’s Church in Cleckheaton will host a unique service, based on Women’s World Day of Prayer.

It is estimated that more than three million people in 170 countries will gather to take part in the day of prayer.

Churches across the world will use an order of service written by Christian women from The Bahamas.

The prayers have been translated into more than 1,000 different languages and dialects.

The theme of the service this year was taken from St John’s Gospel, chapter 13 verses 1-17.

A spokesperson for the church said: “Women’s World Day of Prayer is an international, interchurch organisation which enables us to hear the voices of women from a different part of the world each year, expressing their hopes and concerns and bringing them before the rest of the world in prayer.”

The service is open to the public at St John The Evangelist Church, Church Road.

It will take place on Friday, March 6 at 2pm.
