Dear Church Leaders, Governing Board members, affiliates, observers and friends,
Churches and people of faith in every neighbourhood, city, and town across Canada are raising their fervent prayers for peace in Ukraine. Many Canadians have been remembering friends with Ukrainian heritage, colleagues in Ukraine, or perhaps their own visits to Ukraine. The country and people are now under siege and it is a shock to our collective consciousness.
The Council joins with the global Christian community in calling for an end to this war. Read the full statement by Council General Secretary Pastor Peter Noteboom on our website in English or French, or see the attached documents.
With prayer, we work for peace.
