Message from the Bishop

I ask all the people of Brentwood Diocese to remember in their prayers particularly this week-end all the people of Manchester and beyond who have been caught up in the recent tragedy.  Our thoughts and prayers go out to the dead and injured; their family and friends.

At this time it is important to stand together and always to seek love before hatred.  The response of the families of the people of Manchester has been a great witness for us all – in our turn we need to continue to support our friends in Manchester in whatever way we can.
