Love one another

Back to Latest News

We pray for equality and harmony in our community and across the world.

‘So God created mankind in his own image, in the image of God he created them;  male and female he created them’. Genesis 1:27

God of Peace,

You created us in your own image, your love is enduring and we ask that you help us to show this love to one another.  Your word says “There is neither Jew nor Gentile, neither slave nor free, nor is there male and female, for you are all one in Christ Jesus”.

Our values of service, compassion, justice and perseverance are at the heart of our school community. Give us the strength and courage to speak out against injustice, and work for equality for all. Help us to serve, be compassionate, work together to transform and bring harmony.   Lord, we ask that you spread your hope to every corner of the nation so that in a world with darkness, there will be light, in a world that has sorrow, there will be joy, and in a world with hatred, and injustice there will be equality and peace. 

We pray that you will help us to be peacemakers and practice your commandment “love one another”. 

Holy Lord, we put our faith and trust in you for today and the belief in a future world of peace and harmony.


Lambeth Town Hall was lit up purple on Tuesday evening to mark the tragic death of George Floyd in Minnesota, USA. George Floyd was a victim of police brutality as he was arrested. Footage of his arrest has been shared globally and has horrified millions of people across the world, including people in Lambeth.


Cllr Jack Hopkins, Lambeth Council’s Leader, said: “We are a council, a borough and a community that believes in justice. The death of Mr Floyd highlights the huge injustices faced by Black communities in the US, and we want to demonstrate our rejection of all such discrimination here in our part of London.

“We will light our iconic town hall purple, so that people can see our abhorrence of racism, in any form, at any time. We stand with the Mayor of Minneapolis Jacob Frey and the people of the city during these difficult days."  You can read more and see the image of LambethTown Hall here.
