Our prayers go out to Guy Elsmore, our former General Secretary, and his family at the tragic loss of their son, a student at the University of Bristol.

For them, our prayer and hope that ‘grace is everywhere’ will have a special meaning at this time. Chair of Modern Church Alan Race sent Guy a message on behalf of us all:

‘Anyone who has been in ministry will know how devastating for any family this can be. Our prayers for everyone concerned have the advantage of going beyond words which are always inadequate in the face of such experiences. Please be assured of them as part of the threads of love that binds us all together.’
