Rev Stuart Dimes
HRH The Prince Philip
Duke of Edinburgh
10th June 1921- 9th April 2021
It is with deep sadness we have heard of the death of His Highness the Duke of Edinburgh. Our deepest sympathy goes out to her Royal Highness her Majesty the Queen at the loss of her loving husband Prince Philip; he was a constant support and encouragement to her.
We as a nation also mourn his passing as he was a servant not just to her Majesty but to our country the United Kingdom and Commonwealth of Nations.
The church will be open for people to come and pay their respects, and to be still and give thanks for his life and to sign the book of condolence.
There will be a service at 11am in St Mary and St Bartholomew Hampton in Arden this Sunday with special prayers for the Duke of Edinburgh, her Majesty the Queen and Royal Family.

Our church supports this Foodbank. If you would like to donate, please contact Rev. Stuart for information
Here is a messsage from a Volunteer Co-ordinator at the Foodbank.
You kindly donated 39.65kg of food to Kingfisher Foodbank on 4th April. Many thanks.
Government research conclusively shows that, even prior to the pandemic, one in twelve of all households in the UK were experiencing low or very low levels of food security.
As you know, hunger and destitution continue to rise in the UK, with the devastating effects being felt by more and more families every day.
Millions of families are worrying whether their food will run out before they get money to buy more, can’t afford balanced meals, skip meals or are forced to eat less than they should because there isn’t enough money for food.
Your support has been invaluable in helping many of these people.
Thank you again.
