STATEMENT BY THE CHURCHES TOGETHER IN MEDWAY FOLLOWING THE SAD PASSING ON TO GLORY OF HIS ROYAL HIGHNESS THE PRINCE PHILIP, DUKE OF EDINBURGH

On behalf of the CTIM Executives and the churches we represent here in the Medway Towns, I want to express our deepest condolences to Her Majesty The Queen, the Royal Family, the United Kingdom and the Commonwealth on the death of His Royal Highness Prince Philip, The Duke of Edinburgh.

It is our prayer that the Lord of all comfort will be with the family and indeed the nation at this time of sadness in Jesus’ name Amen. We take solace in the fact that the Lord promises us that the Duke is resting on in the bosom of our Lord and saviour Jesus Christ.

We are very grateful to God for a life of dedicated service to the nation and for his devotion to, and loving support of, Her Majesty The Queen, to whom he was married for over 73 years. He will surely be missed by all.

Prince Philip leaves an outstanding legacy which includes a sterling military career and extensive charitable work reflecting his diverse interests which he continued to pursue till the very end.

His concern for young people found expression in The Duke of Edinburgh Award Scheme through which the lives of countless young people across the world have been transformed since it was launched in 1956.

We as churches pray that God will comfort Her Majesty, the Royal Family, and the nation at this time.

May His Royal Highness rest in peace.
