As we unite in anguish for the plight of the people of Ukraine  many people are asking, ‘what can we do?’
At this stage – and mindful that there is a long road ahead – we would highlight two dimensions for response:

  1. Spiritually: let’s continue to pray for peace. For no less than a change of heart from Putin; and for God’s mercy amid the turmoil, especially for all those in dire straits. There is a prayer station in the St Nicholas' chapel at St James' and online resources are available on the diocesan website here
  2. Financially: we can keep giving financial aid through the charities and funds which are working on the ground. We encourage in particular a church-to-church channel, so that we empower our brothers and sisters in Ukraine and bordering countries – such as through the Ukraine Emergency Appeal which is a joint venture between the Diocese in Europe and USPG.
