Responding to the Manchester terror attack

Trinity’s minister, Revd Dominic Grant, writes:

We at Trinity join with churches, faith groups, and community organisations across our Borough and throughout our nation in condemning Monday’s bomb attack. To the bereaved and injured, and to all who call Manchester their home, we offer our condolences and affirm our solidarity.

Together with all people of goodwill, our diverse faith traditions hold in common a commitment to pursue peace with justice, and to build healthy communities shaped by generosity and mutual respect. These are values which those responsible for Monday’s atrocity sought to attack and undermine. But the response of Manchester’s citizens – seen in countless acts of selfless compassion and in dignified demonstrations of unity – stands as a powerful testimony: such attacks will not succeed.
