This year's current events have triggered The Methodist Church in Britain to host weekly online prayer meetings.
As part of the Church's Year of Prayer, which marks the start of the Church's calendar, the 15 minute services will be a time for "whole Church to be disciplined and intentional about seeking God's will, God's purpose, God's dream for the world."
The short weekly online service will take place each Tuesday lunchtime, beginning on 1st September.
Trey Hall, director of evangelism and growth for the Church told Premier Christian News:" The world seems to be falling apart right now, with Covid, the institutional racism that has always been present in lots of our organisations and our whole society, but it's now some to the surface of things and so we're wrestling with that and need to have that called out and repent and change.
"There's global warming and the climate catastrophe. All of those things feel like systemic world changing kind of events. We want to be especially open to God to hear what God is saying to us in the midst of all of this."
The Year of Prayer is also part of the Methodist Church's commitment to evangelism and church growth.
Hall added: "This summer, we made a serious commitment to re-centre on evangelism, to commit more deeply to be an evangelistic, growing, inclusive, justice-seeking Church of gospel people. We know that if we are going to be about that work in any time in any season, but particularly in this in this season, for such a time as this, we know we will need to rely on God, not ourselves."
The Church said the services will be led by a different person from across the Church each week using music, story, silence, art, and differing theologies and styles of worship.
