Describing the days in which we live as ‘times of deep challenge and crisis for the whole of our society’ the Moderator of the Presbyterian Church in Ireland, Rt Rev Dr David Bruce, has called the entire denomination to prayer.

He has written to all ministers in PCI’s 500-plus congregations across Ireland calling the Presbyterian family to pray over the weekend of 27-29 November, which includes the first Sunday in Advent.

Dr Bruce has also recorded a special call to prayer message for the Church, which you can watch on the link below. Beginning with the stark words, ‘We need to pray’, the Moderator encourages members to pray, not only for Ireland in these days of pandemic and for PCI’s partners overseas, who have been devastated by Covid-19, but also the ‘big decisions facing us as Brexit approaches at the end of December’.
