Westminster Lockdown

Home » News » Westminster Lockdown

Church member Brian Latham writes:" Thank you to all members and friends who contacted me regarding Wednesday's tragic incident. Both Andrew (Brian's son) and I were working there on Wednesday, and we were part of the lockdown along with MPs, Lords, Bishops, chefs, waiters, doorkeepers, journalists, researchers and Methodist royalty in the form of Rev Leslie Griffiths. We were all taken to Westminster Abbey for safety, then individually interviewed by the Met Police before being allowed to leave. Thank you for your concern and condolences for the families affected."

As well as praying for all those affected by this cowardly act, we pray that each one of will help to ensure that the terrorist aim of creating fear, division and hatred will be overcome by our shared compassion and humanity.
