We join with the whole nation, and friends across the world, as we express our sorrow at the death of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II.
Our churches are open as we remember our Queen and pay our respects to our longest reigning Monarch. Our thoughts and prayers are with the King and Queen Consort and the Royal Family. In our own grief and sorrow, we pray for our nation and commonwealth and give thanks for her life, her service, her dedication and example.
Gracious God, we give thanks for the life of your servant Queen Elizabeth, for her faith and her dedication to duty. Bless our nation as we mourn her death and may her example continue to inspire us; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
