It's with sadness we receive the news of the death of His Royal Highness Prince Philip, the Duke of Edinburgh, at the age of 99, following decades of public service. At Stoke Minster our prayers are with Her Majesty the Queen and the Royal Family at this difficult time.
In the midst of the pandemic, we're not expecting to open the church for private prayer at this time, as we would seek to do in other circumstances. It's still possible to light a candle online as we reflect and give thanks. You may wish also to contribute to the Church of England's online book of condolence.
