On Praying Together

This Sunday 18th February is the Universal Day of Prayer for Students, otherwise known as Student Sunday! UDPS is coordinated by the World Student Christian Federation (WSCF), and has been celebrated since 1898, making it one of the oldest ecumenical days of prayer. SCM Member Sian shares why she thinks praying, specifically praying in community, is still an important but often overlooked element of the Christian faith.
