  1. The 53-minute service video, produced by the Women’s Inter-Church Council of Canada, can be watched at home, or via Zoom with others, or via local TV stations. The video can be downloaded from for FREE.  Community TV stations broadcasting this recording can be found at  To buy a copy of the video, go to and order a USB stick.
  2. During a Zoom or Facebook Live meeting with others, participants can take turns reading the various speaking parts in the WDP 2023 service. For a print copy of the service, please download it from (after first registering as a Service Coordinator).  Add other resources from as desired. This could include the music recordings and the devotional message.
  3. Gather via Zoom to discuss the service after watching the video individually.
