Bishop Ken Good (Diocese of Derry and Raphoe) has condemned the daubing of sectarian graffiti on the walls and doors of Ballyarnett Presbyterian Church. The attack took place on the city-side church in Derry / Londonderry over this past weekend.
Bishop Good has been in personal contact with the Minister, Rev Alastair Rosborough to express his regret at the incident and to pass on his good wishes to the congregation. He said, “Any attack of this nature is deeply upsetting. I wished to let Rev Rosborough and his congregation know that they are in my thoughts and prayers”.
Bishop Good was speaking as the Archbishops and Bishops of the Church of Ireland meet in Derry / Londonderry for a two-day residential. He said, “Our city has made enormous strides to build bridges and distressing incidents like this are the work of a small unrepresentative minority. I do hope that the congregation in Ballyarnett are aware of the united voices of support for them from all sections of the community in this city”.
