We join with people across Australia, the Commonwealth and the world in mourning the death of Her Late Majesty Queen Elizabeth II.

Further details of a Special Commemoration Service will be published in due course.

Let us pray:

God of our lives, we give thanks for the life of Queen Elizabeth, for the love she shared among us, and for her devotion to duty. We entrust her now to your love and mercy, through our Redeemer Jesus Christ. Amen.

Merciful God, be close to all who mourn, especially The King and all members of the Royal Family. May they know the hope of your promises and the comfort of your love, through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

The Very Reverend Chris Chataway
