    A statement from Archbishop Justin Welby and Archbishop John Sentamu in response to events in the United States of America

    “Recent events in the United States of America have once again drawn public attention to the ongoing evil of white supremacy. Systemic racism continues to cause incalculable harm across the world. Our hearts weep for the suffering caused – for those who have lost their lives, those who have experienced persecution, those who live in fear. God’s justice and love for all creation demands that this evil is properly confronted and tackled. Let us be clear: racism is an affront to God. It is born out of ignorance, and must be eradicated. We all bear the responsibility and must play our part to eliminate this scourge on humanity. 

    “As Dr Martin Luther King Jr said, ‘In a real sense, we are all caught in an inescapable network of mutuality, tied in a single garment of destiny. Therefore, injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere.

    “We pray that God’s abounding wisdom, compassion and love will guide leaders across the world to forge a better society."

    THY KINGDOM COME

    A special prayer guide has been created by Rev Jules to enable you to follow along with us.

    THY KINGDOM COME
    Our Diocese is part of Thy Kingdom Come movement which is a global prayer movement that invites Christians around the world to pray from Ascension (21st May) to Pentecost (31st May 2020) for more people to come to Jesus.

    We would like to invite our local Churches
    (St Lawrence's & St Anne's) to join Thy Kingdom Come chain of prayers along with churches from over 65 different denominations in 178 countries around the world.

    During the 11 days of Thy Kingdom Come, it is hoped that everyone who takes part will:

    1. Deepen their own relationship with Jesus Christ;
    2. Pray for 5 friends or family to come to faith in Jesus;
    3. Pray for the empowerment of the Spirit that we would be effective in our witness


    By doing so, "we all commit to play our part in the renewal of the nations and transformations of Communities"
    (Archbishop Justin Welby).
