St Paul’s supports Ukraine

The photos below were taken on Mar 20th showing displays in support of Ukraine outside the Church.

The display shows the prayer for Ukraine from the Archbishops and is repeated below.

God of peace and justice,
we pray for the people of Ukraine today.
We pray for peace and the laying down of weapons.
We pray for all those who fear for tomorrow.
that your Spirit of comfort would draw near to them.
We pray for those with power over war or peace,
for wisdom, discernment and compassion
to guide their decisions.
Above all, we pray for all your precious children, at risk and in fear,
that you would hold and protect them.
We pray in the name of Jesus, the Prince of Peace.
Archbishop Justin Welby
Archbishop Stephen Cottrell

In addition there will be a retiring collection to support Ukraine after the Mothering Sunday service on Mar 27th and a Coffee and Cake stall is planned for April 10th from 11:30am to 1:30pm.
