Vigil for Ukraine

It was a cold evening, but still the people of Mountsorrel gathered on the green to hold a vigil for the people of Ukraine. The event which was organised by the Churches Together in Mountsorrel saw people gather for readings, real-life stories from the situation in Ukraine, silence and prayers. Candles were lit as a symbol of our prayers and Ukrainian flags were ‘planted’ on The Green as a symbol of our commitment to strive for peace.

Our grateful thanks go to the Parish Council for their permission to use The Green for this event and for permission to leave the flags planted as a reminder.

Vigil for Ukraine

Join us on Friday 1st April between 7pm and 8pm on The Green in Mountsorrel (LE12 7AE) for a vigil for peace in Ukraine.
This short gathering will consist of real-life stories from Ukraine, readings, silence and prayers. There may be the opportunity to light candles and ‘plant’ a flag. Come for five minutes, come for an hour. All are welcome including those of any faith or none.
If you would like to show your support for the people of Ukraine come and join us.

We will not be collecting money or asking for any contributions of any kind at this event. We simply ask you to come and stand with us in solidarity for those whose lives are under threat.

Following the feedback given by our parishes and those across the Diocese of Leicester, the Diocesan Synod will be meeting on Saturday 9 October to vote on the way forward.

Church is changing…

 It is clear that the Church in our Diocese will be facing massive changes in the not too distant future. The proposed models of ministry will, depending on your personality type, either fill you with trepidation and anxiety or excitement and adventure. Either way, as you discover more about the proposals, like me you will probably have many questions. Find out more about the Shaped by God Together local conversations on our SBGT page:
