Alert Not Alarmed

Home » News » Alert Not Alarmed

All UK congregations have received a letter from the Deputy Assistant Commissioner of the Metropolitan Police Neil Basu QPM about security. It follows last week's murder of Father Jacques Hamel in France and 'the indiscriminate nature of terrorism and the brutal and senseless actions of these criminals.'

The key message is to ask all congregations of churches, mosques, synagogues and other places of worship to 'be alert but not alarmed.' The Home Office is also running an 8 week scheme offering funding for buildings felt to be especially vulnerable.
