Presidents of Churches Together in England have today issued a statement encouraging Christians to join in daily prayers for the King and the nation.
The forthcoming Coronation of King Charles III is a moment of great importance and joy for this nation.
As Presidents of CTE, we invite Christians from all traditions to join together in a period of daily prayer, for both the King and the nation, from Easter Day through to 6 May.
We welcome the publication by the Church of England of the book of Daily Prayers for the Coronation of King Charles III which can be used as a guide to reflection. The Coronation will be a time to celebrate community, faith and service – values that are reflected in these prayers.
