His Royal Highness Prince Philip 1921 - 2021

Duke of Edinburgh Official Pho
Press Association

Friday’s sad news of the death of His Royal Highness, the Duke of Edinburgh, means that as we enter the Easter season, our nation and the Commonwealth also embarks on a period of mourning.

The death of Prince Philip, who was made Baron Greenwich when he married the then Princess Elizabeth in 1947, is of course both a family and a national bereavement.

This Sunday at 6.30pm we are holding a service of Evening Prayer in church and on Zoom (see below) led by Revd Caroline Risdon and Revd Simon Winn with members of St Alfege Church choir , when we will give thanks for the Duke’s life of public service and pray for Her Majesty the Queen and the Royal ,Family as they mourn a much loved husband, father, grandfather and great grandfather.    A recording of the service is available here.  Passcode 7^2XR^z+

When the church is open for private prayer in the days ahead (see details below), there will an opportunity to pause, light a candle and spend a while in reflection and prayer.  Coronavirus restrictions mean that books of condolence will not be left out. Those wishing to leave a message of remembrance can do so electronically on the Church of England here
God of our lives,
we give thanks for the life of Prince Philip,
for his love of our country and Commonwealth,
and for his devotion to duty.
We entrust him now to your love and mercy,
through our Redeemer Jesus Christ. Amen.

The church is open for private prayer on Sundays, from 1.30am to 2pm and also on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 12 noon to 2pm.  

Message from the Churchwardens

We wish to keep everyone as safe as possible, and, as we must still adhere to social distancing, numbers in church have to be seriously limited. Sadly, we may have to turn people away once optimum numbers are reached. 

If attending any of our services please help us by arriving fifteen minutes before the service begins, signing yourself in with the QR code and taking your seat; go straight to your seat and sit as close to the tick as possible. (Shuffling up the pew compromises the distances which have been measured.  Remember to think front and behind as well as alongside). Please wear your mask at all times while inside the church.
Thank you for helping us to help everyone.
