Supporting Muslims

Home » News » Supporting Muslims

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.

Dear Friends,
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
Yours sincerely
Rev Helen Kirk
