Stories of Faith

The materials for this year’s celebration were prepared by SCM Britain, on behalf of the Europe Region.

First celebrated in 1898, the Universal Day of Prayer for Students is observed on the third Sunday of February; in 2016 it is celebrated on February 21st. The UDPS is one of the oldest ecumenical days of prayer.

This year’s theme is ‘Stories of Faith’ – highlighting faith reflections and experiences of students and young people from around the world and from different contexts. Our British SCM has prepared the 2016 resource toolkit, which will help you run a UDPS-themed service on Sunday 21 February, with prayer points from universities across Britain, stories of faith from around the world, sermon notes, ideas for small groups, reflections from students and worship and liturgy ideas.
