This being the 25th Anniversary of the Falklands Conflict the Falklands Prayer was read by Commander David Lingard RN who served in HMS Avenger during the campaign.

Almighty God, maker of earth and sky and sea, we give you thanks for the freedom in which we enjoy the beauty of the created world; and we remember with gratitude and humility those of our Armed Services who paid the price of that freedom in the Falklands Campaign.

May not only our memories of that conflict, but our commitment to one another, further the cause of justice, freedom and peace in the world.

Through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen
