Bishop Jane’s Call to Prayer:
My brothers and sisters in Christ,

More people face famine today than any time in modern history. Unfortunately, this crisis is not hitting the news and the world is not responding quickly enough. The window to deliver life-saving assistance to more than 20 million people is closing.

This Diocese has a prophetic role in calling its members, our wider society and government to make a difference during this unprecedented period of suffering.

The Global Day of Prayer to End Famine was created by a broad coalition of more than 70 faith-based organisations, representing more than 1 billion Christians worldwide, to respond to the worst famine crisis of our time. Join us in prayer.

  1. Use resources available and commit time to pray in your church and family.
  2. Add your church to the map of churches committed to praying worldwide and see where other churches are praying.
  3. Share your prayer and actions and be inspired by what others share on social media using #praytoendfamine.

“Let us all join together across the diocese for this global day of prayer. 
We remember our brothers and sisters around the world, known and unknown. 

We commit to ongoing prayer and loving action.”
