Chinese churches celebrate Women's World Day of Prayer in provinces and cities including Jiangsu, Zhejiang, Guangdong and Beijing. This year the theme is "Receive Children, Receive Me". The material of the service is written by Cuba and translated by CCC&TSPM. The origins of Women's World Day of Prayer date back to the 19th century when Christian women in the USA and Canada initiated a variety of cooperative activities in support of women's involvement in mission, at home and abroad, according to the official website.
