Remembering His Royal Highness Prince Philip

 

 

 

  All of us will have been saddened to hear of the death of Prince Philip today, 9th April, at the age of 99. He has been such a character at the heart of national life for so long. We offer our most sincere condolences to Her Majesty the Queen and to all the Royal Family.

   In non-Covid times, we had planned to open Books of Remembrance at such a time but Covid means that is not possible. You can however send a message of condolence via the Church of England website here https://www.churchofengland.org/remembering-his-royal-highness-prince-philip . You can also light a virtual candle here https://www.churchofengland.org/our-faith/light-candle

  Please do all join in this significant moment in our national life. 

Our Sunday services will be an opportunity to join together in prayer and feel free to join us. Check calendar for services on 11th April

Do pray:

  • Heavenly Father, into whose hands Jesus Christ commended his spirit at the last hour: into those same hands we now commend your servant Philip, that death may be for him the gate to life and to eternal fellowship with you; through Jesus Christ our Lord.  Amen.
  • Most merciful God, whose wisdom is beyond our understanding, surround the Queen and the Royal Family with your love, that they may not be overwhelmed by their loss, but have confidence in your goodness, and strength to meet the days to come. We ask this through Christ our Lord.  Amen.
