2nd June Prayer Day

Special celebrations to mark our 150th year are being organised in different ways across the world. But on 2 June a day of global prayer and celebration was held in London. The day, which was organised by Scripture Union England & Wales, included a prayer walk to Islington where the first Scripture Union meeting was held in 1867.

Prayer walking & celebrations

On Friday 2 June friends and supporters of Scripture Union gathered to celebrate and to pray near to the place where, the founder of SU, Josiah Spiers, held his first meeting for children and where Scripture Union was born.

The day, organised by Scripture Union England & Wales, included a morning of worship and ministry-themed prayer stations, followed by three walks of Prayer and Praise across London.

One of the walks went to Islington, where SU International Director, Janet Morgan, led people on a tour to where the first Scripture Union meetings were held in 1867. The group were able to visit the old school room where the first large meetings of the Children's Special Service Mission (CSSM) were held (pictured right).

Two other groups prayed for SU around the world and other topics in Trafalgar Square and in Kennington Park.

Parts of the day were streamed live on Facebook and can be viewed here: https://www.facebook.com/scriptureunionew/
