The Conference of European Churches is calling on its members to join in the Week of Prayer for Christian Unity, traditionally celebrated between 18-25 January.
Congregations and parishes all over Europe take part in the Week of Prayer.
"Praying together of the unity of the Church is the strongest way for our 115 member churches to show their ecumenical spirit. That is why we urge them to join the Week of Prayer for Christian Unity," said CEC General Secretary Rev. Dr Guy Liagre.
"Has Christ been divided?" is the theme for the week of prayer in 2014 and is from the letters of St Paul to the Corinthians (1:1-17).
A text for the week has been jointly published by the Pontifical Council for Promoting Christian Unity and the World Council of Churches through its Commission on Faith and Order.
