Benefice of Keyworth, Stanton and Bunny

Queen Elizabeth II

Queen Elizabeth II

1926 - 2022

We join the Nation, the Commonwealth and the world in mourning the death of Queen Elizabeth II. Her example of service to Jesus Christ, to the United Kingdom and the Commonwealth over seven decades has been an inspiration to us all.

At a time of great mourning we are doing our best to make sure that our church buildings can be open for everyone to have a space to pray and remember. There are also opportunities for you to sign books of condolence in the villages of our benefice.
Bishop Paul writes: "We can be truly thankful for the Queen’s wonderfully fruitful and faithful life of service, inspired continually by her steadfast trust and hope in Jesus. Though she is no longer with us, she is now at home with peace and joy in the presence of her Lord and Saviour. This is the hope of God available to everyone in life and in death."
Our prayer is first that she may rest in peace and rise in glory, then for her family and all who mourn her, and then for King Charles III and his Queen Consort as they take up their new responsibilities at a time of sadness for them and their family.
