Windrush Antidote?

Home » News » Windrush Antidote?

This closing prayer in last Sunday's Christian Aid-themed service provides an antidote to the 'hostile environment for immigrants' obviously prevalent in the Home office.

"Give us, Lord God...
A world where the weak are protected, and none go hungry,
A world where life is shared, and enjoyed by all,
A world where all races, nations and cultures live in tolerance and respect,
A world where peace is built with justice, and justice is guided by love.
Give us the inspiration and courage to build your Kingdom here and now."

And talking of building kingdoms, may we thank Windrush-carried immigrants and all other immigrants for helping to rebuild this country after World War II. We greatly value both you as individuals and your contributions, not least, within our own church here in Buckingham Street. So thank you!
