Wellfield Church School and its community is greatly saddened to hear of the passing of Her Majesty, Queen Elizabeth II.
At this sad time, we remember together an extraordinary person; not only was she our Queen, our Sovereign, she was also someone who believed that leadership meant dedicating her life to the service of others.
We pray that God will bring comfort and hope to her family at this distressing time as well as to all those whom she reigned over with such dignity and grace.
The children have today started a book of commemoration for our church school community and we would invite parents and members of our founding churches to come and leave your thoughts and prayers as a sign of respect.
Gracious God, we give thanks
for the life of your servant Queen Elizabeth,
for her faith and her dedication to duty.
Bless our nation as we mourn her death
and may her example continue to inspire us;
through Jesus Christ our Lord.
A Prayer from Methodist Central Hall Westminster and the London District of the Methodist Church:
Loving God of all, we give thanks for the long life of Her Majesty The Queen;
for her wisdom and dignity;
for her faithfulness to her vows;
for her dedication to public service;
for her Christian faith and joyful witness.
May she rest in peace
and enjoy the gift of everlasting life.
We entrust Queen Elizabeth to your eternal love
and pray for all her family,
but especially to The King,
and all the Royal Family.
In Jesus’ name. Amen.
