The hour-long service will include lament for the impact of the war, prayer for peace in Ukraine, and a celebration of Ukrainian identity. It will include contributions from refugees and other members of the Ukrainian community in Bradford; the Bradford-based Ukrainian choirs, Fialka and Dibrova; Judith Cummins, MP for Bradford South; the Lord Mayor of Bradford; and the Bishop of Bradford.
The service, held in conjunction with the Association of Ukrainians in Great Britain (AUGB), will feature stories and music from Ukraine, along with Bible readings, the Lord’s Prayer sung in Ukrainian, and the opportunity to light candles. Representatives of other faiths will be invited to stand in solidarity with the Bishop of Bradford. Above all, we will be praying for peace in Ukraine.
