Churches Together in England statement at the death of Her Majesty the Queen
It is with deep sadness that Churches Together in England receives the news of the death of HM Queen Elizabeth II at home in Balmoral. Churches Together in England unites 52 Church denominations in England including Anglican, Catholic, Free Church, Pentecostal, Charismatic and Orthodox traditions. Our Member Churches unite in offering deepest condolences and prayers for HRH the Prince of Wales and the whole Royal Family at this time.
HM Queen Elizabeth has reigned happy and glorious for over 70 years. As monarch she has often spoken about her Christian faith and how it has strengthened her and been a guide and source of hope during her entire reign. During her reign she has invited fifteen Prime Ministers to form governments in the United Kingdom. She has seen the highs and the lows of the nation’s history over these past decades. She has been a steadfast presence in the midst of the changing sands of time. Churches Together in England’s Member Churches are grateful for her reign and the value she has placed on the role of all of the Churches in the fabric of our nation and the nations of the Commonwealth.
We join with the people of our nation in mourning her loss and pray for those involved in making preparations for the funeral. We pray comfort and strength for the whole nation at this time as we join together to mourn the passing of Her Majesty the Queen and reflect on her life well lived.
