We remember that on this day a year ago and in the weeks afterwards we saw rise from the hurt so much love and so much light as the people of Manchester stood together and brought huge signs of hope amongst the despair, declaring that there is another, better way.
We pray that God might bring comfort to those affected by what happened on that day. We pray peace over the city and we thank God for the hope and love we see amongst ordinary people's actions every day.
And we thank God for the hope we have in Jesus that shows us that there is more to life than this.
Tonight we gather to pray at 7.30pm. All are welcome to join us as we pray for the local community, the city and the wider world.
