Some of the city’s churches gathered together last Sunday to pray for the Queen and to celebrate her Diamond Jubilee.

The event, United in Prayer, which was held at the Ridgeway Centre in Wolverton Mill south, was sponsored by eight parishes of the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG) in conjunction with other local churches.

The celebration drew a large crowd from various sections of the Milton Keynes community, including MP Iain Stewart and the city’s new mayor, cllr Catriona Morris.

For cllr Morris, it was one of her first major engagements since becoming mayor a few days before, and she committed herself to promoting the work of the many local community organisations.

Speaking afterwards, Mr Stewart said: “It was an enjoyable and uplifting event. The churches have a lot of passion and commitment to improving lives in the community and they form a valuable part of the rich tapestry we enjoy in Milton Keynes.”

Pastor Sola Ewedemi, spokesman for the churches, added: “Our churches and members are very much a part of this city and we are glad that we could kick off the many local jubilee celebrations that will be held by praying for the Queen and political leaders.”

The other churches that joined RCCG in organising this event are New Life Church, Faith Dimensions, King’s Church and Rhema International Church.
