Following the actions of President Trump and events in Quebec, our Superintendent Minister Reverend Helen Kirk, sent the following letter to our friends and neighbours at the mosque.
I am writing to you on behalf of Aylesbury Methodist Church in the light of events that are unfolding in our world today. As Christians we are appalled by the anti-Muslim rhetoric that is coming from the highest office in the USA and the ban on refugees that has been put in place there. Even as I write this letter news is coming through of a terrorist attack on a mosque in Quebec, a truly horrific crime against people peacefully practising their religion.
To many Christians in this country it feels like the world has become a darker place; we believe that Jesus Christ came to show the unconditional love of God: as the Bible says 'for God so loved the world' and as such that love surpasses barriers of race & religion. Therefore, once again we would like to offer a hand of friendship to our Muslim brothers & sisters and to assure you of our prayers and support.
Please do not hesitate to contact us if we can be of any assistance
