Witness outside National Service of Thanksgiving to mark 50 years of the Continuous at Sea Deterrent (CASD)
On Friday 3rd May Westminster Abbey will be hosting a “National Service of Thanksgiving to mark 50 years of the Continuous at Sea Deterrent (CASD)”. The decision to host this service in Westminster Abbey is contrary to the motion passed by the Church of England General Synod in July 2018 which says that “nuclear weapons, through their indiscriminate and destructive potential, present a distinct category of weaponry that requires Christians to work tirelessly for their elimination across the world.”
If you share our concerns, you can get involved:
Pray – for our nation and those involved in decision-making around nuclear weapons.
Sign – The Christian CND petition which calls on the Dean of Westminster Abbey to not go ahead with the service. This will be delivered to the Dean ahead of the service to demonstrate the opposition to this event.
Share – The statement that CCND is coordinating alongside Anglican clergy who are opposed to the service. You can view the statement and see who has already signed.
Witness – APF is supporting a witness outside Westminster Abbey on 3 May.
