Following this morning’s terror attacks in Brussels, Churches Together in Hitchin will be holding a prayer gathering for those affected this evening.

The prayer meeting will be at Our Lady’s Catholic church in Nightingale Road at 7.15pm as part of a Lenten prayer gathering – all are invited, no matter what denomination.

Churches Together in Hitchin decided to hold such gatherings in times of emergency and atrocity after an impromptu meeting at Our Lady’s on the night of the Paris attacks in November.

Those unable to attend, or at a meeting at their own church, are invited to join their prayers with those at Our Lady’s however they can.
