whose Son Jesus Christ exchanged the glory of a heavenly throne for the form of a servant,
we thank you that you have given Elizabeth our Queen a heart to serve her people,
and have kept her devoted in this service beyond all who were before her:
encourage us by her example to serve one another, and to seek the common good,
until you call us all to reign with Christ in your eternal kingdom.
At this time of great national sadness, the church will be open for quiet contemplation from 11.00am – 1.00pm each day from Friday 9th September until Sunday 11th September inclusive. There will also be the usual Sunday service at 10.30am.
Our thoughts and prayers are with the Royal Family during this time.
