The World Day of Prayer will be held on Friday, March 5, at St Peter's Presbyterian Church, 48 Macquarie Street, Cowra, hosted by St Peter's Presbyterian Women's Association.

The service will be led by Rowena Casey from St Peter's, with representatives from other churches in Cowra taking part in the service.

The hymns and songs will be sung by Penny Simpson, accompanied by organist Evelyn Harris.

Former resident of Cowra, Heather Barr, will be the guest speaker.

This year the focus is on Vanuatu, one of our South Pacific neighbours, and the theme is "Build on a Strong Foundation".

The service has been prepared by the Christian women of Vanuatu, a republic formed after gaining independence in 1980 from a French and British Condominium government.

It proudly adopted the motto, "In God we stand".

Everyone is invited to attend.

Morning tea will be served in St Peter's Hall following the service.
