Each year, Anabaptist-related churches around the world are encouraged to worship around a common theme on a Sunday close to January 21, usually the fourth Sunday in January. On that date in 1525, the first Anabaptist baptism took place in Zurich, Switzerland. Anabaptist World Fellowship Sunday provides an opportunity to remember our common roots and celebrate our worldwide koinonia.

Hamilton Mennonite Church is grateful to be part of Mennonite World Conference, and we will join our global Anabaptist family in this year's theme "Following Jesus together across barriers" in our January 24 online worship. The MWC global assembly in Indonesia has been rescheduled to 2022 (from 2021). We give thanks that we can still be led in worship this year by the resources prepared by MWC member churches in Asia.
