CHURCH SUPPORTS AXED FINANCIAL WORKERS

As financial districts in London and New York reeled from the collapse of investment bank Lehman Brothers and the rescue of Merrill Lynch and AIG, local church leaders opened their doors to give pastoral support. Revd Marcus Nodder, Senior Pastor at St Peter’s Barge, a floating church in Canary Wharf, said the congregation was echoing the prayer of Psalm 46, asking that shocked workers would find God to be ‘their refuge and strength’. Docklands chaplain Revd Fiona Stewart-Darling said many would be affected by the crisis ‘and it’s the Church’s job to be there for people’. In New York, Trinity Church, Wall Street is offering daily services and quiet spaces alongside career workshops for those who have lost their jobs.

I believe in the triune God, the death, resurrection and ascension of Jesus and the empowering of the Holy Spirit at Pentecost. I hold the Bible to be the Word of God.
