The Ukraine Crisis: Practical Help

by Michael Ford last modified 24 Mar, 2022 01:56 PM

We will be updating this page regularly with the latest guidance from National Church, resources to help you pray for the Ukraine, and any other key information. Last updated 21 March 2022

From National Church:

From the Diocese of Salisbury


Please continue to intercede, here are some prayer pointers:

  • For the people of Ukraine and for their leaders as they counter the attacks on their country and fear for their lives
  • For the leaders of nations, for diplomacy, for pressure on the Russian leadership, including the Russian Orthodox Church, for peace
  • For the people of Russia who are living in fear, for courage to speak out and protest
  • For the Anglican Church in Europe in those lands, particularly the small congregation of Christ Church, Kyev and the congregation of St Andrew’s, Moscow
  • For the journalists working in Russia and the Ukraine, for good channels of communication
  • For the humanitarian response to the crisis, international aid agencies, for our own response to be effective as we give in the best possible way
  • For refugees, their welcome, the hospitality of nations and our own government’s response

There are some helpful resources on the Diocese of Europe’s website, including liturgy.

A version of the lyric video for the song Lord, have mercy, with the Ukraine flag overlaid, is available for free download. You may wish to use it to aid in prayer times.


Although we may want to give practically, there are increasing messages from aid agencies stating that unless there are key contacts in the Ukraine or neighbouring countries, any collections of provisions may get in the way of planned responses.  Therefore, the best way to give is financially.

Disaster Emergency Committee charities, which includes Christian Aid, World Vision and the Red Cross, are in Ukraine and neighbouring countries meeting the needs of all refugees and displaced people:

£30 can provide essential hygiene supplies for three people for one month

£50 can provide blankets for four families

£100 can provide emergency food for two families for one month


  • We are encouraged to continue to exercise pressure on government regarding refugees.  Please send an email to your local MP urging them to support Ukraine by pushing for safe passage for refugees.
  • Please stand with local Ukrainian and Russian families who need support at this time, all are fearful in different ways, especially children in our schools.  Our school leaders may also need support in talking about the conflict to children.
