His Royal Highness The Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh
The President and Vice-President of the Methodist Conference have made the following statement in response to the announcement of the death of His Royal Highness The Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh.
The Revd Richard Teal and Carolyn Lawrence said: “We were deeply saddened to hear of the death of His Royal Highness The Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh. We will remember Prince Philip’s dedicated support of Her Majesty The Queen for over 70 years, and his long and exceptional service to the country and to the Commonwealth. We thank God for the Duke’s commitment to hundreds of voluntary organisations and the positive impact his Award Scheme has had on the lives of millions of young people.
In her grief, we pray that the Queen will be comforted by her strong faith in the days and weeks ahead and we extend our condolences to her and all of the Royal Family”
Come and visit us, we'd love to meet you
Hall Lane is an active church with thirty-four members with a wide age range attending morning worship. Our ladies group and lunch club are particularly well attended and we have an active social calendar and support a different charity each year. Every year we celebrate a theme, this year's being 'Peace' following on from Love, Faith and Hope in previous years.
We’re located in Whitwick (pronounced Witik) and are part of the National Forest East circuit of the Methodist Church. Our circuit consists of seventeen churches serving an area within the National Forest. Although we are situated in Leicestershire we are part of the Nottingham and Derby District.
'We believe we are called to share our knowledge and faith in Jesus with others so that our families, friends, neighbours and those we meet in everyday life may be encouraged to follow Jesus for themselves.’.
