Support from Lambeth Palace - Archbishop Rowan Williams is praying for Pakistani Christians!

Lambeth Palace the London residence of the Archbishop of Canterbury and Main Offices for the Anglican Church

Our invitation to the Archbishop of Canterbury or other Bishops was sent to late this year.  However, Lambeth Palace have indicated their support for this weekends event and have advised that they will be praying for the Situation in Pakistan.  Moreover, the Archbishop has met with the President of Pakistan at the end of last year. Read more in the response received below:

"Dear Mr Chowdry

Thank you very much for your email on this important issue. As you will be aware, the Archbishop regards the abuse of the blasphemy laws as a serious matter which once again appears to have led to the murder of Christians in Pakistan. The Archbishop has addressed his concerns to the President of Pakistan directly and a delegation on his behalf met with the Prime Minister of Pakistan at the end of last year. The recent events make it clear how necessary it is for action to be taken by the Pakistani authorities.

I am glad to see that Bishop Michael Nazir Ali will be present at the event and I recall that in addition Bishop Tony Robinson attended last November. I will draw the event to the attention of those in London who might be able to attend although you will appreciate that with the very short notice this will be difficult for many. Archbishop Rowan is not able to attend as he has other engagements in his diary, but he would wish you to know that the Christian community in Pakistan is constantly in his prayers.

Yours sincerely

Guy Wilkinson
