14-20 October 2023
International Development Week
International Development Week will take place during Saturday 14 to Friday 20 October (with 'ID Sunday' falling on 15 October).
This year's theme is 'Global Community' exploring what it means to be community and considering the idea that church should be an example of community at its best – loving, serving, inclusive, generous.
Overall, it is an opportunity to explore, celebrate and support The Salvation Army's work tackling poverty and injustice around the world during the Sunday and throughout the week.
