Wigton Prayer Service and Candlelit Vigil

Support for Ukraine event – Wednesday 23rd March, Wigton

With so much national and international anger at what is happening in Ukraine and so much sympathy for the people of that country (and all the other countries affected) Wigton Town Council, our Mayor and the churches of Wigton invite you to special events next Wednesday evening, 23rd March.

In the Methodist Church in Wigton there will be a half hour session of prayer from 7.30 p.m. onwards.

Then from 8 – 8.15 p.m. there will be a silent candlelit vigil on the Cornmarket in front of St Mary’s Church. (It will be inside the Methodist Church if the weather is poor).

David Ferriby, Mayor of Wigton, says, “Everyone is invited to come to one or both of these events to show solidarity with the people of Ukraine, and the millions of others desperately trying to help to relieve the suffering.  It would be good to see our community come together in a show of support. In addition, people are encouraged to donate to the DEC – the Disasters Emergency Committee. Over the coming months and years huge sums of money will continue to be needed to repair lives shattered by this war”.
