CMS Ireland has been supporting the Episcopal Church of Sudan since the mid 1970s through prayer, finance and sending personnel. The organisation has organised A Day of Prayer for Sudan in its Belfast office on Friday January 7.
This week the Archbishop of Armagh, the Most Rev Alan Harper OBE, called upon all parishes within the Church of Ireland to pray for Sudan on Sunday January 2, a week ahead of the referendum.
