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 2023 on Video

Leprosy Sunday 2023 is focused on helping the hospital and laboratory at Anandaban in Nepal to reach Greater Heights. This video (available from Jan 6 2023) from Paralympian Stef Reid shows just how vital it is that the lab at Anandaban is rebuilt and reopened as soon as possible. You can use this video as part of your Leprosy Sunday service or share it online to encourage other churches across Scotland to reach Greater Heights in caring for people affected by leprosy in Nepal and around the world.

About Leprosy Sunday 2023

This year on Leprosy Sunday we are thinking especially about how we can all be a part of finishing what Jesus started by making leprosy a thing of the past. In recent years, Leprosy Sunday has allowed your church to help SPOT leprosy in people affected by it. And to TREAT leprosy effectively when it is found. This year you can help to STOP it completely

Your church’s Leprosy Sunday service will help re-establish the world-class research laboratory at Anandaban Hospital in Nepal. So that the research conducted here will continue to play a vital role in helping to end leprosy once and for all.

Your gifts and prayers will help to finish what Jesus started by making leprosy a thing of the past.

When you register you will be able to access all the materials you need to help your church to hold its Leprosy Sunday service on whichever Sunday in 2023 suits you best. We will send you Gift Envelopes for your congregation but everything else will be available for you to download and print as many copies as your congregation requires.

Materials available online include

  • Information Leaflets for your congregation
  • Children’s Resources

We pray that your Leprosy Sunday will be a blessing to you all and that together, the church across Scotland will reach Greater Heights to help eradicate leprosy around the world.

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.
