Our Condolences to our Patron Queen Elizabeth II on the sad news of the death of Prince Philip, her devoted husband

Into your hands, O Lord,

we humbly entrust our brother Philip, Duke of Edinburgh.

In this life you embraced him with your tender love,

and opened to him the gate of heaven.

The old order has passed away,

as you welcome him into paradise,

where there will be no sorrow, no weeping nor pain,

but the fullness of peace and joy

with your Son and the Holy Spirit for ever and ever.

Amen

We also join together in this prayer from the Church of England

These friezes were hand-painted by Marion Swift, a member of the congregation of St Peter’s, for the Children’s Corner. Even though the church has had limited opening and visiting, we wanted them to be seen. Marion has painted several more for different events and festivals of the church year, which will be posted at the relevant times.
