2021 Week of Prayer for Christian Unity

The Week of Prayer for Christian Unity (WPCU) is a major international ecumenical endeavour that is held in Canada each year at the end of January. Locally, churches will gather for a prayer service, and many will do special events throughout this time as well. The 2021 Week of Prayer for Christian Unity takes place on January 18–25 with the theme, Abide in my love and you shall bear much fruit (John 15:5–9).

Each year, international worship resources are prepared by a group of Christians from various parts of the world. The ecumenical writing team of the Canadian Council of Churches (CCC) adapts the resources to suit the Canadian context. International resources for the 2021 Week of Prayer for Christian Unity have been prepared by the 50 women of the Monastic Community of Grandchamp in Switzerland .
