Dear all

I imagine by now you have all heard the sad news from the Palace.

Her Majesty has been a very important part of all of our lives, and we will all want to grieve in different ways. I will be discussing with the churchwardens what might be appropriate in each parish, but I hope that as a minimum we will be able to keep our churches open later than usual today and tomorrow for those who would find that helpful.

There will be a short service of prayer and reflection, remembering her late Majesty, on Friday 9th September at 3.30pm at St James’ Church, Cherhill, to which all are welcome.

However you choose to mark this sad occasion, if you are the sort of person who prays, do please join me in asking for God’s strength, comfort and wisdom for the royal family.

With blessings
