Beth Shalom hosted a special multi-faith service on Monday 14 March in support of and solidarity with all those caught up in the terrible war in Ukraine.
Our chairman welcomed members and all our guests to the evening service, which was very well attended. The service took place at Auckland Road and was also shared on Zoom.
The service was led by our senior warden with readings and prayers from members and several guests including Reverends Devin McLachlan and Nigel Uden, Mr Iqan Hishidi and Mr Abdul Kayum Arain. We also heard from Mr Andrii Smytsniuk, a language teacher at the University of Cambridge who spoke very movingly about his own family who are still in Ukraine.
A huge thank you to all those involved in contributing to the service.
Beth Shalom is looking at how we can help those in Ukraine and those currently seeking refuge.
