Prayer Vigils for Ukraine - Sunday 3rd April, 6pm
The Ukraine war that many expected to be over in days is now into its 6th week. Since the Russian invasion, many thousands of lives have been lost and millions of people have been displaced. The war has had far-reaching effects both on the global economy and international relations.
The Churches and church organisations in Weston are responding both with humanitarian gestures but also by mobilising prayer. All of the local churches are praying for peace at their services and would welcome anyone to join them.
The churches along with people from across the community are also gathering together each Sunday night as an act of solidarity with the Ukrainian people, to light candles, to reflect and to pray for the situation. We are meeting at two venues.
This Sunday 3rd April, at 6pm, vigils are taking place at St Andrew's Church, Bournville and Worle Baptist Church.
Rev Alan Bailyes from Worle Baptist Church said, we will be open on Sunday from 6pm for a time of prayer and reflection for all those suffering as a result of the war in Ukraine. Together, in the presence of God, we will stand in unity and present our prayers to Him, our loving Father. We will ask God to be the hope for all those affected at this time and to bring peace. All are welcome.
Rev Tim Erridge at St Andrew's, Bournville said, We welcome you to drop in for as little or as long as you are able, between 6pm and 7pm as we make space to pray for peace in Ukraine. Kindly note - the entrance to the church is in the Car Park around the back of the building through the blue double doors.
