St Peter’s Church, Chellaston
Friday 9th April 2021
It is with great sadness that we have received the news of the death of His Royal Highness The Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh. Our thoughts and prayers are with Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth, her family, our Country and the Commonwealth.
The Royal Family have asked that Covid 19 rules should be kept and instead of gathering to lay floral memorials if wished we could make donations to a charity of our choice.
There is an electronic book of condolence which can be accessed on the Derby Diocese website where you can leave a message should you wish to do so.
A PRAYER ON THE DEATH OF HRH THE DUKE OF EDINBURGH
God of our lives,
we give thanks for the life of Prince Philip,
for his love of our country,
and for his devotion to duty.
We entrust him now to your love and mercy, through our Redeemer Jesus Christ. Amen.
Please pray for Queen Elizabeth at the loss of her beloved husband, her strength and stay.
