In times of personal and corporate crisis, Christians try to do two things: pray and offer practical support through service. As we all watch the invasion of Ukraine with horror and anxiety, we at St Mary’s are doing these two things.
We invite you to join us in prayer for Ukraine, using the words of a prayer from Bishop Christopher:
The Lord shall give strength to his people; the Lord shall give his people the blessing of peace (Psalm 29:10)
God of strength and peace, send your blessing on the people of Ukraine. Sustain them in their struggles, hold them in their fear, protect them from all danger, and be for them the hope they desire; for Jesus Christ’s sake. Amen.
If you would like to give directly to the Ukraine appeal of the Disasters Emergency Committee, just follow this link to their website. Alternatively, you can give cash at any service at St Mary’s between now and Easter, using the specially marked collection box at the back of church. This will also go to the DEC appeal.
If you know of anyone who needs practical support – Ukrainian refugees or Ukrainians and Russians fearful of what is happening in their respective homelands – please direct them to the clergy at St Mary’s and they will do their best to offer practical and emotional support.
