Leprosy Sunday

In Scotland we encourage churches across the country to hold a Leprosy Sunday during a service that suits them at any time of year. To help your church do so we produce a range or materials that vary year on year to meet the needs of churches who have used previous years packs and told us what they find particularly useful.

Leprosy Sunday 2020 on Video

The social distancing rules brought in to tackle the Coronavirus pandemic mean that churches are unable to meet in person to hold a Leprosy Sunday service as originally planned. And of course we can’t come and be with you.

To help your church hold it’s Leprosy Sunday service, even when in lockdown we have produced a short Leprosy Sunday service on video. You can watch this on your own or use it to fit in with however your church, or smaller groups within the church, are meeting online during lockdown. However you use it we pray that it is a blessing to you.

If any church wishes to use individual parts of the service within whatever structure you have set up during lock down, get in touch and we work out how best to serve you and to send you the relevant video files.

Did you know?

World Leprosy Day is the major date in the leprosy calendar. Every year on the last Sunday in January (in some countries this is extended to cover the whole of the last week in January) the whole world has a chance to stop and consider those people who are affected by leprosy around the world.

It is an opportunity to celebrate the many stories of hope, transformation and restoration that have been achieved as The Leprosy Mission, and many other organisations, take steps towards achieving our ultimate goal of making leprosy a thing of the past.

It is also an opportunity to grapple with the scale of the problem that still exists around the world.
