Facebook 

This month on Facebook you found the director of the Evangelical Alliance in Northern Ireland's statement on the death of Martin McGuinness really helpful: "Today I pray that Northern Ireland will continue on its journey towards peace and a thriving society. I pray for the many victims of the Troubles and their relatives. I pray for Martin's wife and family. And I pray that during this season of Lent, we will pause to reflect on Jesus's ultimate act of sacrifice that brings the opportunity of true freedom to everyone."

Faith leaders at No. 10
