Loyal address

“HER MAJESTY has attended every inauguration of the Synod — that’s ten — and has done so on every occasion with patience and support for the Church,” the Archbishop of Canterbury said at the start of business on Wednesday, as he moved that the Synod do present a Loyal Address. “On each occasion we have moved a loyal address, and, as the years have gone by, it seems more and more appropriate that we express our thanks and gratitude to her for her commitment to the Church, for her faithful Christian witness, for her fidelity to her coronation oaths,” he said.

Later, in the debate on the use of church buildings, it was suggested that every church should hold an event to mark the Queen’s 90th birthday in April next year.
