A Day for Wales

We want to encourage churches to pray for Wales throughout the year, and to make this a special focus around St David's Day.

We have prepared a PowerPoint for 2022 to use in a Sunday service or a prayer meeting. You can download a copy here. We have also put five short videos on our YouTube Channel encouraging prayer for different topics. These can be downloaded here: Pray for Derwen, Pray for Pioneer Planters, Pray for Denominations, Pray for Young People, Pray for Bivocational Workers.

Suggestions for your ‘Wales Day’...

We suggest that you give 5-10 minutes in your main Sunday meeting to give:

An awareness of the need

Explain the challenges facing us in areas without live churches.  Explain the particular needs of Welsh language areas where tradition and formalism have a strong hold and where congregations are often elderly and declining rapidly.

Please see the map on our Prayer page for specific information.  You will also find links to encouraging stories from different parts of Wales on our YouTube Channel.

A time of corporate prayer

Pray for Wales generally, encourage people to pray for one or two particular situations that are relevant for your church and for any initiative that you have links with already.

Ongoing prayer

A Waleswide bookmark is available to remind people to continue praying for Wales. The bookmark encourages people to adopt a town and pray for it regularly. There is helpful information about places in need of prayer on the Prayer page. The bookmark can be downloaded for desktop printing here: Bookmark. Copies of the bookmark can also be obtained by emailing This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.. Please give your name and address and say how many copies you will need.

Further action

Perhaps you could raise a discussion through small groups in your church on how churches and individuals could be involved to help and support situations in other parts of Wales. You can download a helpful worksheet here.

Waleswide has developed a training session to help contextualise our churches in the light of Welsh culture and history and the present day challenges: Where on earth is Wales?  Please discuss and pray about your church's engagement with these issues.  For further details see Where is Wales?
