World leaders gathered in Westminster Abbey on Saturday 6 May to celebrate the Coronation of King Charles III.
Faith leaders were also present, including the President of the Methodist Conference, the Revd Graham Thompson. In this reflection, he shares his thoughts on the historic day and on the message of service which was a theme throughout.
Hugely significant were the number of departures from the Coronation of seventy years ago. On Saturday, ecumenical partners took part (including our former District Chair Helen Cameron, as Moderator of the Free Churches Group) as they invoked a corporate blessing on the king.
