War in Ukraine

As the war in Ukraine continues, we may be asking ourselves what we can do to help. Bishop John wishes to draw our attention to the following actions we can take:

  1. Prayer. Please do continue to remember the power of prayer. The following prayer can be said for Ukraine:

and this prayer for world peace can also be prayed:

2. Give. There are two safe and secure ways where your gift can support those most in need: https://www.dec.org.uk/appeal/ukraine-humanitarian-appeal & https://ukraine-emergency-appeal.raisely.com/. Please avoid organising charitable collection of toys, clothes and bedding as this is often inappropriate and not what is most needed. 

3. Act. Following a great deal of pressure – not least from Lords Spiritual – on Monday the Government announced a scheme for welcoming Ukrainian refugees. Many church people will want to play their part in offering hospitality. A Government FAQ and registration of interest form are now live. You can also register your interest as a potential sponsor at Sanctuary Foundation.
