HRH Prince Philip 1921-2021

Following the sad news of the death of Prince Philip, here is a prayer that can be used during this period of national mourning

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.

Prayers will be said for Prince Philip and for the Queen and Royal Family at all the services at Saint Giles Church and there will be a brief service at 6.30 pm on the evening before his funeral.

A national online condolence book is now open for individuals and communities to record messages. Government guidance under the current Covid-19 precautions is that physical books should not be offered at this stage. 

Also, because of Government guidance and in line with the wishes of Buckingham Palace we are encouraged not to place flowers in memory of Prince Philip, but rather make a donation to a charity.
