At this time of great sadness following the death of His Royal Highness, Prince Philip, we want to offer an opportunity for our local community to remember and give thanks for his remarkable life and service.
The church will be open on Monday, 12th April and Tuesday, 13th April, for anyone who would like to take time in the quiet to reflect, pray, and to light a candle. The church will be open from 10am-1pm, 2pm-5pm & 6pm-8pm.
You are also very welcome to tie a ribbon on the gate of our Garden of Remembrance, as a gesture of remembering and giving thanks for Prince Philip’s life.
We have been informed that due to Covid restrictions it’s not possible to have a book of condolence in church for people to sign. However, if you would like to write a message, you can do so using the Church of England’s online book of condolence by following the link here.
You can also leave a message of condolence at the Royal Family website by following the link here and clicking on the ‘Book of Condolence’ button on the right.
You might like to join in the following prayers for Prince Philip, and for the Royal Family in their sorrow at this time:
God of our lives,
we give thanks for the life of Prince Philip,
for the love he shared among us,
and for his devotion to duty.
We entrust him now to your love and mercy,
through our Redeemer Jesus Christ.
Merciful God, be close to all who mourn,
especially The Queen and all members of the Royal Family.
May they know the hope of your promises
and the comfort of your love,
through Jesus Christ our Lord.
