Would you like to share a picture of your church or a scenic part of your parish with fellow-Christians in Latvia and receive a postcard from Rīga in return?
If so, St Saviour’s Anglican Church in Rīga would love you to send a postcard for display at their annual ‘Bāznīcu nākts’ (‘Night of Churches’) event at the end of May.
We have received the following message from Joe Horgan, warden at St. Saviour’s Anglican Church in Rīga, Latvia.
“Greetings from St Saviour’s Anglican Church in Rīga! We have a huge favour to ask all of you: Each year in Latvia at the end of May we have a country-wide event called ‘Baznīcu nākts’ (Night of Churches) where almost every church hosts concerts, lectures, discussions, etc, and visitors will visit multiple churches throughout the night.
“Our church also usually displays different exhibitions of art done by our members, and one idea I had for this year would be a wall/display of postcards from many different churches throughout the Anglican world! That way, we would be able to represent not only ourselves on this special occasion, but our entire denomination and your church as well!
“It would be fantastic if your church could send us a postcard with a small written message for St Saviour’s or for Latvia in general, preferably one with your church pictured if possible. If you don’t have one with the church building visible, any postcard from your parish will do!
“We will make sure to display them so both sides are visible and your messages are visible as well. If you are so kind as to send us one, we will send you one back as well!
“Our address is: St Saviour’s Anglican Church Anglikāņu iela 2 Rīga, LV-1050 Latvia.
“Thank you so much in advance, and we look forward to sending you greetings!”
