Evangelical Alliance prays for people of Norway
The Evangelical Alliance expresses its deepest sympathy to the people of Norway at this tragic time. Our prayers are with the families and friends of those murdered in Oslo and on the island of Utoeya. We also pray for the many people injured in the attacks.
As all Norwegians begin to deal with this national trauma, our hope is that Christians in Norway play their part in the healing process. We also hope that this diabolical reminder of the persistence of evil will not adversely affect the much cherished freedoms and social harmony in the country.

Notes to Editors
The Evangelical Alliance
We are the largest and oldest body representing the UK’s two million evangelical Christians. For more than 165 years, we have been bringing Christians together and helping them listen to, and be heard by, the government, media and society. We’re here to connect people for a shared mission, whether it’s celebrating the Bible, making a difference in our communities or lobbying the government for a better society. From Skye to Southampton, from Coleraine to Cardiff, we work across 79 denominations, 3,500 churches, 750 organisations and thousands of individual members. And we're not just uniting Christians within the UK – we are a founding member of the World Evangelical Alliance, a global network of more than 600 million evangelical Christians.
