On behalf of everyone at St John’s we offer our deepest condolences to Her Majesty the Queen and her family. Prince Philip was held in affectionate respect by many, both in the U.K. and across the Commonwealth. As Archbishop Justin Welby commented “He consistently put the interests of others ahead of his own and, in so doing, provided an outstanding example of Christian service”. He will be sadly missed.
An opportunity to post a message of condolence is available on the Church of England website here
