Prayer Vigil for Peace in Ukraine 6pm 26th Feb

I am sure we have all been shocked by the invasion of Ukraine by Russian forces but feel a sense of powerlessness in the face of such naked aggression. However, there is one thing that we can do - pray.

I have been contacted by someone who attended a very moving prayer vigil last night involving both Ukrainians and Russians praying for peace and it is clear from that vigil that the Ukrainian churches are hoping that others will mobilise a movement of prayer for them at this time. With that in mind we have decided to hold a prayer vigil tomorrow evening (Saturday 26th) at 6pm the Lych Gate to St. Mary's Church. The reason we have chosen the Lych Gate is that it stands as a focal point for the community to remember the cost or previous wars in Europe and in the circumstances it seems to be an appropriate place for our praying.

So that people can plan their evenings we have decided to say that the prayer vigil will finish at 6.30pm, although people would be welcome to stay longer if they feel that they want to. We are also encouraging people to bring candles to light.

Please come along if you can to pray for peace in Ukraine
