7 months, 1 week ago

The Bishop of Southwark, the Rt Revd Christopher Chessun, speaking about the violent deaths in the Diocese of Southwark on Friday 14 June said:

‘I am appalled by these further deaths within the Diocese and my thoughts and prayers are with the victims and their families at this time.  Violent crime in our city is on the rise and the Diocese of Southwark has been working with the Diocese of London, the Ascension Trust and other organisations to try to tackle this terrible increase and to find ways to help to bring peace to our streets.  Please remember all those affected by these latest deaths and those that have gone before in your thoughts and prayers as we will do in our churches this weekend.’
