A message from SIM UK’s Director Steve Smith

“The characteristic of a true sovereign is, to acknowledge that, in the administration of his kingdom, he (or she) is a minister of God”

John Calvin

We are all deeply saddened at the passing of Queen Elizabeth II. We extend our sincerest condolences to His Majesty The King and The Queen Consort, and the whole of the Royal Family at this time.

We grieve a leader who strove to emulate her own servant-hearted King, Jesus. Queen Elizabeth once said: “For me, the life of Jesus Christ, the Prince of Peace…is an inspiration and an anchor in my life. A role model of reconciliation and forgiveness, he stretched out his hands in love, acceptance and healing.”

The Queen was a remarkable woman with a remarkable place in our lives; a guiding light who served her people. Our prayers are with her family and our nation, as we mourn her passing and celebrate her life and hope through faith in Jesus Christ.
