    The EU Referendum 23 June 2016
    Now that the referendum is over, and the result known, Southend Christians need to say how we feel. This prayer expresses that.  Pray it with us

    Let us build a house where all can dwell

    and all can safely live,

    a place where saints and children tell

    how hearts learn to forgive.

    Built of hopes and dreams and visions,

    rock of faith and vault of grace:

    All are welcome,

    all are welcome,

    all are welcome in this place.


    If you are from wider Europe and living in Leigh on Sea and Southend, you are welcome in this place.
