We at Knightswood Congregational Church were saddened by the tragic events which took place this afternoon in London.
Whilst the details at this time are sketchy and the Metropolitan Police is measured with its statements. We are aware of deaths of at least 5 people, which include the attacker. We will pray for those innocent people who were crossing Westminster Bridge when they were killed or those who were visiting the Palace of Westminster and caught up in the tragedy.
Our thoughts and prayers must go to the wife and children of the serving police officer, PC Keith Palmer who was killed today and to his many colleagues who were injured trying to protect British citizens, tourists and parliamentarians.
We cannot, we simply must not give into terrorism or extremism and it is our duty to stand firm, stand united and to keep the faith. We must not turn on our brothers and sisters of different colour, different race, sexuality or indeed different faith from us. We all believe in the same divine being, whether we call him Allah, Yahweh or God.See this article on Facebook
We at Knightswood Congregational are proud to announce that we have taken the conscious and well considered decision to become a fully inclusive Church and at our Church Meeting we voted overwhelmingly to opt in for same sex marriage.Read in full
We understand that for some people this may be difficult to accept and cope with but the feeling of the church was to embrace all God's People and not to reject any of them.
We are now going to approach the National Records of Scotland (General Registrar) and sort all the relevent legalities. no imminent weddings for the future are in the pipeline but we wanted you all to know same sex marriage will be available.
We would appreciate everyones support and pray that we will be the first of many to fully embrace all God's People.
