Remembering His Royal Highness Prince Philip

Further to the sad news from Buckingham Palace that HRH The Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh, passed away on Friday 9 April 2021, there is an online Book of Condolence available on the Church of England website for anyone who wishes to sign.


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.


‘Remember nothing can separate us from the love of God.’ The Rev. Oliver Ross.
