Prayers for Ukraine

On Sunday 27th February 2022, at 6pm, we joined with friends from Kay St Baptist and Longholm Methodist, and other churches in the valley, at the Cenotaph in Rawtenstall for a candlelight vigil of solidarity and prayer for all those affected by the terrible events in the Ukraine.

Those of us who could not attend in person joined the vigil in thought and prayer, and lit candles in our windows.

Please do continue to remember all the innocent lives caught up in this terrible war - and lets all pray that it will come to an end quickly and that no more lives will be lost.

Jesus said, “Blessed are the peacemakers, for they will be called children of God” (Matthew 5:9) and "Blessed are the meek: for they shall inherit the earth" (Matthew 5:5)
