We, and the other Anglican churches in North Lambeth, are horrified by the death of George Floyd in Minneapolis. It is sickening to see yet another black person dying at the hands of the police.
We, like many of you, are angry at this tragic death. In response we are ready to listen to anyone who wants to speak out about how this death has affected them. Please feel free to contact us at 020 7735 8461 or mail to firstname.lastname@example.org.
We also support all those campaigning non-violently for justice and equality for every member of our society whatever their colour.
As Christians we believe the heart of the Gospel we proclaim is that the ground is level at the Cross. No person or group has greater access than any other to the forgiveness of sin won for them by Jesus’ death on the cross. In our church and community life we commit ourselves to striving for that truth to be recognized and lived out by all.
