The Duke of Edinburgh, 1921 – 2021

It is with great sadness that we heard of the death of Prince Philip, who passed away peacefully on Friday 9 April at Windsor Castle.

 Please join us as we pray:
God of our lives, we give thanks for the life of Prince Philip,
for his love of our country, and for his devotion to duty.
We entrust him now to your love and mercy,
through our Redeemer Jesus Christ. Amen.

You are welcome to come into the church to light a candle or to tie a ribbon onto the railings to mark his passing. You can also send a message of condolence and light a virtual candle on the Church of England website.

We pray for the Queen and all the royal family as they grieve.
