• World Fellowship Sunday

    Each year, Anabaptist-related churches around the world are encouraged to worship around a common theme on a Sunday close to January 21, usually the fourth Sunday in January. On that date in 1525, the first Anabaptist baptism took place in Zurich, Switzerland. World Fellowship Sunday provides an opportunity to remember our common roots and celebrate our worldwide koinonia. 

    Each year MWC Executive Committee members from different continental regions designate writers and direct preparation of worship material reflecting life and the church in their part of the world for this celebration. Planning for this special day rotates among the five continental regions. 

    The materials generally include suggestions for worship, prayer requests from around the world, an introduction to the church in the region producing the materials, stories and sermon prompts. Conferences around the world are invited to translate if necessary, adapt, copy and distribute the material to all their local churches. The churches are asked to plan a World Fellowship Sunday worship service that will help them enter more fully into fellowship, intercession, and thanksgiving with and for the global faith family. 

    Materials for World Fellowship Sunday are available on these pages. Click to open and download or copy the files. They are also being sent to MWC member churches.
