Death of Father Jacques Hamel

The funeral of the Catholic Priest, Father Jacques Hamel, murdered by extremists in Rouen last week, takes place in France om Tuesday 2 August.

As a gesture of solidarity, and in our own small way, to stand up against such evil, we are holding a special service to show our support for France and, for that matter, all countries affected by recent attacks by extremists in the name of religion.

Whether you go to church or not, and whatever your denomination or faith, you are invited to join us, at St Lawrence Church in Napton from 7pm on Tuesday in a united act to show that good will overcome evil. As Christians, as all genuine faiths, we believe in a loving God and that the power of prayer will, eventually, overcome evil. Please join us for an hour of prayer, reflection and to listen quietly to the word of God.
