Praying for Peace in Eastern Europe

Dear friends,

Just to let you know that space has been set up in the church for you to come and pray about the situation in Eastern Europe.

Also, on Sunday evening, instead of our planned service, we will hold a vigil for peace.

Between 7 and 8 p.m. you are welcome to drop in to listen to some Ukrainian sacred music, light a candle and take away a prayer to use through the week.

The service which starts at 8 p.m. will consist of short chants and silences and also an opportunity for those attending to share Bible readings, poems and prayers. There are plenty available on the internet. You are invited to bring something which speaks to you or to write your own prayer or poem to share.

Please spread the word and invite friends and family to join us in prayer.

In the meantime, here is a prayer by the Archbishops of Canterbury and York.

with love
