Protestant churches offer hand of friendship to Bloody Sunday relatives

Published 17/06/2010

The leaders of the three main Protestant churches met the families of the Bloody Sunday victims in Londonderry where they presented them with a sculpture of the Hands Across The Divide statue.

A large crowd was at the Bloody Sunday memorial in the Bogside to greet the Rev Paul Kingston, President of the Methodist Church, Rev Norman Hamilton, Moderator of the Presbyterian Church, and Bishop Ken Good, Bishop of Derry and Raphoe.

Bishop Good handed a miniature replica of Maurice Herron's sculpture which greets people travelling from the Waterside to the Cityside of Derry to Jean Hegarty, sister of Bloody Sunday victim Kevin McElhinney. Bishop Good said he hoped the sculpture was “a sign of renewed friendship”.
