Show of unity at vandalised church boosts congregation

Editor's Viewpoint

Nothing can excuse the dastardly attack on Christ Church in Londonderry last week, but people from all backgrounds attended a reopening service there yesterday.

They included members of the SDLP, Sinn Fein and independent republicans, as well as representatives from other political groups and from other churches.

This will have brought some comfort to the people of Christ Church after such a disturbing experience. The Christ Church members face a difficult time in repairing their church, but they will take heart from knowing that so many people will support them, and they will not be alone.
