Many carry pain and unresolved emotions from a decision to end a pregnancy, or offer up a child for adoption. These pains and sorrows often go unspoken and we feel like we carry them alone. As churches, we want our communities to be safe spaces where grief can be shared and pain can be held in collective love. Shamefully, the Church has not always been a safe place for children. We grieve this, and confess the evil this has enabled where love should have prevailed.

Tonight the combined churches of the peninsula are hosting a candlelight service of lament, remembering, and prayer. It will be held at St Aidan’s Anglican Church, 89 Miramar Ave. Come for yourself. Come for your friends and family. Come for our children.
