It is with profound sadness and sincerity that the National Presiding Bishop, Executive Board and church community of Church of God of Prophecy, within the United Kingdom, expresses condolences and joins in prayers for the victims, their families, and those whom have been injured in the attack in Westminster on Wednesday 22nd March 2017.
Our church joins the chorus of commendation to the bravery, dedication and professionalism of our capital city’s emergency forces. We extend our prayers to cover our Prime Minister, the government, all parliamentarians and staff for their courage in the face of adversity and their willingness to continue serving our nation. With this in mind, we pray for people of faith and no faith, that the peace of God will have pre-eminence in our hearts, in our city and our country.

The Church of God of Prophecy will be a Christ-exalting, holiness, spirit-filled, all-nations, disciple-making, church-planting movement, with a passion for Christian union. We seek to love God with our heart, soul and mind and to love our neighbour as ourselves.’ Deuteronomy 5:5; Matthew 22:37-40; Mark 12:30-31)
The Church of God of Prophecy
Empowered by the Holy Spirit through prayer, we will plant churches and equip leaders to carry out the biblical mandate to make disciples of all peoples of the world, to the glory of Christ our Lord, Head of the Church (Luke 10:2; Matt 28:19-20)
We are committed to bring others into a loving relationship with God and to help them grow in their love and knowledge of Him. To work with other Bible-believing Christians in the essential work of Kingdom ministry (Matthew 28:18-20’ Acts 1:7-8) … an ethical, prophetic development of Christianity in the UK, Europe and the rest of the world
The Church in the UK is a praying, disciple-making, leadership developing and church planting organism. At the heart of our forward movement is the desire to develop ‘healthy’ churches, relevant churches (healthy in mindset and philosophy; healthy in exercise i.e. geared to and involved in mission; healthy in ‘diet’ worship, the prophetic word of God). Key emphasis over the period will be building relationships; caring about each other and the world and sharing of resources.
