Bishop David joins with churches and communities across Birmingham, as the sad news is shared by Buckingham Palace today, of the death of the Duke of Edinburgh:
I am deeply saddened to hear of the death this morning of Philip, Duke of Edinburgh.
I join with the many tributes that give thanks, not least in his unwavering support for Her Majesty the Queen, in marriage and in public life.
I add my condolences and prayers for Her Majesty and the Royal Family as the Nation and people across the world mourn with them.
Churches and communities throughout Birmingham will be offering prayers of compassion and thanksgiving for his remarkable and varied life-long service.
