Loving Our Neighbours, Loving Our World

The War in Ukraine

Along with our archbishops, we 'lament with the people of Ukraine, and we pray for the innocent, the frightened and those who have lost loved ones, homes and family' - as well as praying for a ceasefire and withdrawal of Russian forces from the region so that proper grievances can be aired and a diplomatic solution reached. 

How to donate:

We encourage you to donate to these organisations already operating in Ukraine and among the refugees:

 


Praying for Ukraine:

 

As we cry out to God for peace in Ukraine, and all its people, we're offering two Prayer Spaces to the community of Knaphill and Brookwood:

 

  • Saturday 19 March / 8am-2pm at St Saviour's Brookwood
  • Sunday 20 March / 6:30-8:30pm at Holy Trinity Knaphill

 

These Prayer Spaces will be an opportunity to draw aside and take time out in a safe, calm and dedicated space, in order to pray and seek God, to intercede and petition, with no distractions and with focuses for prayer.

 

Everyone is welcome, at either, at both, for as short, or as long, as you wish.


Other worldwide crises:

 

Tearfund is a Christian charity that believes that poverty is not God’s plan, and an end to extreme poverty is possible.

 

We work directly, and/or alongside local partners and churches, in underserved communities in more than 50 countries to tackle complex poverty through humanitarian response, community development and advocacy and influencing.
