Bishop Christopher says

"We in the Diocese of Southwark have also been on the receiving end of a recent terror attack. So, on behalf of the Diocese, I express solidarity with the people of Barcelona and assure our brothers and sisters in Christ of our heartfelt sympathy and fervent prayers."

The prayer below was written by the Dean of Southwark, the Very Revd Andrew Nunn and it is commended for your use.

Loving God,
as we stand alongside the people
injured, killed or traumatised
in the attacks in Barcelona and Cambrils,
as our own wounds are reopened
and we hear the echoes of horror in our ears,
may we also hear your words of peace
and know that you hold us close
in life, in death.

Amen.
