The people of Northcliffe church have been praying for all those involved in the conflict in Ukraine. The physical destruction of the country, the loss of life on both sides, the trauma endured by the people fleeing or staying is heartbreaking. We like so many others long to see an end to the fighting and a way for some of the suffering to be eased.
As a small token of our concern the guides set up two rows of rope in front of church. they and church members have been tying blue and yellow ribbons onto the ropes. One sits just in front of our memorial tree. Even our spring bulbs in front of church of muscari and tete a tete echo the colours of the Ukrainian flag.
