A statement and prayer following the London Bridge attack 29 November 2019

It is with shock and sadness that, once more, we hear the news of a violent attack on members of the public in what police have declared a terror related incident. Our prayers and thoughts are with those who have been harmed and frightened in the attack at London Bridge. This is a wonderful and diverse city and we know that Londoners will again stand together and not be divided by actions of hate. Acts of courage by members of the public and our police and emergency services again show us the very best of humanity and we owe them a debt of gratitude.

Michaela Youngson, on behalf of the Chairs of the London District

A prayer:

God of love,

we pray for all caught up in the incident at London Bridge,
for those who have been harmed and frightened,
that wounds will be healed and fears calmed.

We give thanks for the work of the police and emergency services
and all who put themselves at risk for the safety of others.

We pray that Londoners will again find the strength, resolve and love
to stand together against hate.
In the name of the Prince of Peace,

our Lord Jesus Christ,

Amen.
