"We hope to have readings and songs and prayers and a time of silence as we remember the people of Ukraine.
"It sometimes seems as if we are helpless as we watch our news, however we can persist in prayer and mark our solidarity with the people of Ukraine as many are doing throughout Europe and the wider world.
"All are welcome.”
People can also bring a safely contained candle if they wish.
