The Duke of Edinburgh 1921-2021

DukeofEdinburgh

We join with the rest of the United Kingdom and the Commonwealth in mourning the loss of His Royal Highness Prince Philip, The Duke of Edinburgh, and give thanks to God for his extraordinary life of dedicated service. We offer our deepest condolences to the Queen and the Royal Family as we pray for them to know God’s comfort in the days and weeks ahead. Prince Philip consistently put the interests of others ahead of his own and, in so doing, provided an outstanding example of Christian service – something that could not be more important in these difficult times for our nation.

A national Book of Remembrance is available at https://www.churchofengland.org/remembering-his-royal-highness-prince-philip. The Union Flag will fly at half mast and prayers said at our services during the eight days of official mourning. The bell is tolled in his memory at noon on Saturday 10th April.

A response to our community, for and on behalf of the
Minchinhampton Parochial Church Council,
regarding Churchyard Regulations, 18th March 2021

The church is very aware that the present works in the churchyard are causing distress to many, and in particular the timing of this. We have heard people’s concerns, both about this and lack of clarity about what the rules state so we hope that this response and information helps.

Churchyards are a place of solace and dignity where people can remember their loved ones and feel close to God. Each memorial is a private commemoration, but a churchyard is a public space of remembrance and reflection. By taking care of the churchyard we show our respect and concern for all families’ graves and memorials.

God of hope and transformation,
who in our Lord Jesus Christ offers the gift of life in all its fullness,

May we be rich in imagination,
confident in faith,
and courageous in our engagement

As we share your life with the world,
keep us rooted and grounded in love
as we bear witness to your glory
and pray for your Kingdom to come.
Amen.
