The church supports these statements by the archbishops of Canterbury and York.
“Recent events in the United States of America have once again drawn public attention to the ongoing evil of white supremacy. Systemic racism continues to cause incalculable harm across the world. Our hearts weep for the suffering caused – for those who have lost their lives, those who have experienced persecution, those who live in fear. God’s justice and love for all creation demands that this evil is properly confronted and tackled. Let us be clear: racism is an affront to God. It is born out of ignorance, and must be eradicated. We all bear the responsibility and must play our part to eliminate this scourge on humanity.
“As Dr Martin Luther King Jr said, ‘In a real sense, we are all caught in an inescapable network of mutuality, tied in a single garment of destiny. Therefore, injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere.’
“We pray that God’s abounding wisdom, compassion and love will guide leaders across the world to forge a better society.”https://www.churchofengland.org/more/media-centre/news/statement-archbishops-canterbury-and-york-response-events-united-states

It has been wonderful to see the artwork by Banksy bring together members of our community , to talk and to share and to be part of something bigger. Barton Hill is a place which has so much to offer. Together we are a vibrant and creative community.
