Westminster Abbey nuclear weapons thanksgiving service - clergy protest
Christian CND has been coordinating the following statement on the upcoming “National Service of Thanksgiving”
Clergy within the Church of England have protested against the planned “Service of Thanksgiving” at Westminster Abbey to mark 50 years of Britain’s nuclear weapons being on constant patrol at sea should not go ahead.
At a time when the United Nations has agreed a new Treaty to ban nuclear weapons and the Church of England General Synod passed a motion calling on Christians to “work tirelessly for their elimination across the world”, we believe this service sends the wrong message to the global Anglican communion.
Please note if you are ordained within the Church of England anywhere in the world and would like to sign this statement, please email firstname.lastname@example.org
