The Archbishops of Canterbury and York have written a pastoral letter to the clergy and people of the Church of England, calling on them to pray for peace in Ukraine.
In it, they urge Christians to make this Sunday, the 27 February, a special day of prayer for Ukraine, Russia and for peace. They are also supporting a global day of prayer and fasting for peace on Ash Wednesday.
The letter also includes:
- Links to liturgical resources that can be used
- Details of an online prayer session hosted by the Diocese of Europe, taking place on Tuesday 1 March at 6pm (GMT) to pray for the chaplaincy in Kyiv and the churches that serve Ukraine
