Ask Dean of Westminster Abbey to reconsider the CASD thanksgiving service
The decision to host this service in Westminster Abbey is contrary to the motion passed by the Church of England General Synod in July 2018. That motion says that “nuclear weapons, through their indiscriminate and destructive potential, present a distinct category of weaponry that requires Christians to work tirelessly for their elimination across the world.”
Westminster Abbey is a 'royal peculiar' - a church that belongs directly to the monarch and not to any diocese, and does not come under the jurisdiction of a bishop.
We are asking the Dean of Westminster Abbey to reconsider his support for the service.
