LONDON (UMNS)

As rioting in areas of London continued into a third night, the Rev. Jenny Impey, chair of the London District of the Methodist Church, issued a statement saying, "Many people across London and elsewhere are counting the cost of the destruction on our streets. Our churches, which are at the heart of the communities affected, want to play their part in partnership with others to bring healing and peace to those areas, and demonstrate that this city is a place of peaceful, diverse and vibrant communities."

The minister of St. Mark's Methodist Church in High Road, Tottenham, joined other Christian leaders Aug. 8 to offer support to victims.
