The King has been crowned the nation’s monarch and prayed to be a “blessing” to people of “every faith and conviction”. God save the King
𝐓𝐡𝐞 𝐎𝐚𝐭𝐡 His Majesty swears upon a Bible to govern the people with justice and mercy, and to uphold the Anglican Church of England and the Presbyterian Church of Scotland. For the first time at a Coronation, His Majesty also prays for grace to be ‘a blessing to all… of every faith and belief’.
A message of sympathy from the Chairperson.
Capel-le-Ferne Parish Council are deeply saddened by the news of the passing of Queen Elizabeth II on the 8th September 2022. A truly inspirational Monarch who dedicated her life to her throne and her people. She taught us so much about the commitment we have to our communities,
our country and the world.
For many, including our Parishioners, she was the only Monarch we have known and loved, and she gained a very special place in our hearts. She had a plethora of wisdom and integrity.
The Councillors and Parishioners of Capel-le-Ferne, along with the rest of our country and people throughout the world, mourn the loss of our beloved Queen.
We send our condolences to the Royal Family.
