A message from the Revd Dr John Bradbury, URC General Secretary following the death of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth.


“Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II lived the most remarkable life of dedicated Christian service.“As a devout Anglican and Presbyterian, her faith shone from her words and deeds. Her contribution to the life of our nations, the commonwealth, and beyond will be remembered with gratitude for generations to come. She inspired respect from across the political spectrum and from monarchists and republicans alike.

“The United Reformed Church has always been aware that as each General Assembly presents a loyal address to the throne, we have been addressing a fellow baptized sister in Christ. We give thanks for her life and uphold in prayer all who mourn for her. May she rest in peace and rise in glory.”
