God of our lives, we give thanks for the life of Prince Philip, for the love he shared among us, and for his devotion to duty. We entrust him now to your love and mercy, through our Redeemer Jesus Christ. Amen.


God, be close to all who mourn, especially The Queen and all members of the Royal Family. May they know the hope of your promises and the comfort of your love, through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.


Our churches of St Peter’s Bywell & St John’s Stocksfield will be open from 1 pm to 4 pm tomorrow, Sunday 11th April for people to come and pay their respects, to offer a prayer and light a candle.


There will be no Book of Condolence as the government has advised against this, but if you would like to register your condolences, you can do so by clicking on the QR code below, or by going to to add your thoughts to the Church of England Book of Condolence.


There will be a local service to give thanks for the life of Prince Philip

and to pray for the Queen and all those who mourn him in the next few days.
