Bishop Christopher is calling us all to pray for the people of Ukraine and for peace. You are invited to use the attached prayer in public worship and private intercession. 
 
Bishop Christopher says: “This act of aggression impacts very harmfully on a free, democratic European state and on all the nations of Europe. I exhort you to pray for peace with justice for the people of Ukraine and commend the prayer written by the Dean.”
 
The Archbishops of Canterbury and York in their joint statement this morning have said: “The horrific and unprovoked attack on Ukraine is an act of great evil. Placing our trust in Jesus Christ, the author of peace, we pray for an urgent ceasefire and a withdrawal of Russian forces. We call for a public decision to choose the way of peace and an international conference to secure long term agreements for stability and lasting peace.”
