St Paul’s Woking Statement Following Friday’s Attacks in New Zealand

‘We at St Paul’s Woking are appalled at the events in New Zealand on Friday 15th March 2019. We deplore utterly all acts of violence and hate from any group towards any group. We recognise the problem of growing anti-Semitism, Islamophobia and Christophobia in the world. We stand in solidarity with all religions to be able to worship in peace and safety. We pray for the victims and their families and friends in their grief which is incalculable. We pray and work for a country and a world where peoples with profound differences and views can live side by side without fear or harm.’
