Recent spate of murders in London

affecting largely young people and inflicted through stabbings and gun crime.

We are deeply saddened by the recent spike in murders within the Greater London area.

In this holy period of Easter our hearts go out to all the families affected and we offer support and prayers at this difficult time.
