CTE Presidents express condolences after Manchester attack

The Presidents of Churches Together in England: Archbishop Justin Welby, Cardinal Vincent Nichols, Revd Dr Hugh Osgood, His Grace Bishop Angaelos, The Revd Canon Billy Kennedy and Bishop Dr Eric Brown have expressed their sincere condolences after last night's attack in Manchester which has killed more than 20 people and injured over 50.

‘The Presidents write: 'Our thoughts and prayers are with all those bereaved and injured by the cruel, senseless terrorist attack in Manchester. May God grant them strength and courage. Our faith teaches us that even the worst of evils can never defeat love, so we pray that the people of Manchester, of all faiths and none, will discover a renewed unity as they respond to this atrocity with compassion, dignity and hope.’
