Prayer Vigil for Ukraine - Clarence Park Baptist Church, WsM, Sunday 24th July, 6pm

5 months on, the war in Ukraine is showing no signs of a peaceful settlement anytime soon. The invasion has impacted many millions of Ukrainian people who have been displaced across Europe. The burning of crops and blockades of ports have massively thwarted the nation's ability to export grain, creating a very real 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 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 24th July for the next united gathering which will take place at Clarence Park Baptist Church, Walliscote Road, Weston-super-Mare, BS23 1ED, at 6pm.

Rev Steve Christian, at Clarence Park Baptist Church said, 'We would welcome all local people for this hour of quiet reflection, prayer and contemplation for those affected by the conflict in Ukraine - but also other wars that are taking place. This is 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.'
