Methodist President & V.P.: June 2017
From the President of the Methodist Conference, the Revd Dr Roger Walton, and Vice-President Rachel Lampard
"We are appalled by reports of a fatal attack on worshippers at the Finsbury Park Mosque. This is particularly offensive in that it happened during the holy month of Ramadan.
"We pray for all those who are affected.
"On Sunday thousands of people — Muslims, Christians and others — joined together for the Great Get Together and the Big Iftar. It is this vision of togetherness that we should hold onto in these difficult times."
