HRH Prince Philip

Prince PhilipWe join with the nation and the Commonwealth in offering condolences to Her Majesty the Queen and her family on the death of the Duke of Edinburgh.
Prince Philip's long life was one dedicated to Christian service. As the longest serving British consort, he demonstrated the qualities of Christian marriage in service to his wife and monarch as well as in his service to the United Kingdom and Commonwealth.  We give thanks to God for his life and pray for the members of the Royal Family in their loss. May he rest in peace and rise in glory.

You can sign the online Church of England Book of Remembrance here.

God of our lives,
we give thanks for the life of Prince Philip,
for the love he shared among us,
and for his devotion to duty.
We entrust him now to your love and mercy, through our Redeemer Jesus Christ. Amen.

Merciful God, be close to all who mourn,Duke of Edinburgh
especially The Queen and all members of the Royal Family. 
May they know the hope of your promises
and the comfort of your love,
through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
