There have been a number of enquiries made and people asking how best they might help and support the Ukrainian people following the invasion and commencement of hostilities from Russia.
The Ukrainian Institute in London has a web page that details how that support can be offered. Please follow the link below to find out more.
We pray for those in Ukraine who suffer grievously, for all who take decisions around the world, and for the people and leaders of Russia too.
In practical terms there is an invitation to you on Tuesday 1 March at 6pm (GMT) to pray with the Diocese in Europe for the chaplaincy in Kyiv and the churches that serve Ukraine; and to participate with the wider church in Pope Francis’s call to make Ash Wednesday, 2 March, a day of prayer and fasting for peace.
You can find liturgical resources on the Church of England website here.
The Church of England’s Bishop in Europe, Robert Innes, has also recorded a message urging people to pray.
However and whenever you pray, pray that the world may choose peace.
