Celebrating faith, service and community

The Coronation of King Charles III

The Coronation will be a historic moment in the life of our nation, a time to reflect on our history, celebrate who we are and look to our future.

At its centre is a Christian service in which His Majesty will be anointed as King. It will be rooted in longstanding tradition and Christian symbolism. We offer our prayers for King Charles III and the Royal Family for this important occasion.

We hope that this might be a moment for the nation and many around the world to encounter the person of Jesus Christ, the servant King, and hear His call to each of us to serve others.

The Coronation weekend presents a unique missional opportunity for the Church to reach out, gather together with those we know, and establish new links and relationships. There are many ways for churches and Christians to be involved, from church services, to volunteering initiatives and community events.

A wide range of resources have been created to help people pray, create, encounter, and mark the event in their own setting. As we prepare for The King’s Coronation, may we seek to serve others, connect with our neighbours, and give thanks to God for the wonderful unity we find in the great diversity of our nation.

The Coronation Liturgy: ‘Called to Serve’
