We are deeply saddened to learn of the death of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II. Throughout her life she embodied the bold faith, God honouring excellence and deep integrity that our organisation hold as core values. We are grateful for the Queen's life of service, and all she has done to support charities and raise the profile of vulnerable and excluded groups of people. Her personal faith has acted as a witness to Jesus across the 20th and 21st centuries.
"Although we are capable of great acts of kindness, history teaches us that we sometimes need saving from ourselves – from our recklessness or our greed. God sent into the world a unique person – neither a philosopher nor a general, important though they are, but a Saviour, with the power to forgive..." (Her Majesty the Queen's Christmas message 2011)
We send our condolences to the Royal Family and to all who loved the Queen, who now rests with the King of Kings.
