Join Churches Together in England on 25 May 2021 for Candle of Justice: a moment of action – commemorating the first anniversary of George Floyd’s murder. The Candle of Justice will be a moment to light a candle, pray for racial justice and commit to taking personal and institutional action to tackle racial injustice in our society and our churches. Later that evening, there will then be an opportunity to join churches across the nation for Doing Justice: A National Service of Reflection on the Anniversary of the murder of George Floyd.

To find out how you and your church can get involved in the national #CandleOfJustice campaign on 25 May go to the CTE website.

Daily prayers for racial justice

To mark the anniversary of George Floyd’s murder, CTE will also be sharing daily prayers on racial justice from their Member Churches, one each day from Sunday 23 to Sunday 30 May. A prayer will be added daily to cte.org.uk/dailyprayers from Sunday 23 May, and also made available to share on their social media channels Twitter and Facebook (search @ChurchesEngland).
