Prayer Vigil for Ukraine - Christ Church WsM, Sunday 22nd May, 6pm

The war in Ukraine continues to impact many millions of Ukrainian people who have been displaced across Europe. The blockade of its ports has affected the nation's ability to export crops, creating a growing risk of food famine and global hunger affecting other continents.

The Churches and church organisations in Weston have responded 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.

United Vigil

The churches along with people from across the community have been gathering together on Sunday nights as an act of solidarity with the Ukrainian people, to light candles, to reflect and to pray for peace. Our vision is to help people find hope and strength amidst this desperate situation.

The town's Church leaders have set aside Sunday 22nd May for the next united gathering which will take place at Christ Church, Montpelier, Weston-super-Mare, BS23 2RH at 6pm.

Rev Tom Webber, at Christ Church said, 'We would welcome people from across the community as well as the churches of the town for an hour of quiet reflection, prayer and contemplation for all those affected by the conflict in Ukraine and other wars that are taking place. This is also an opportunity to stand in solidarity and sympathy with those whose lives have been turned upside down through no fault of their own. We look forward to welcoming you.'
