Standing Together Sunday is an opportunity for churches across Britain and Ireland to unite in prayer and lament, and to stand against the increasing levels of serious youth violence. In 2021 there were 31 teenagers murdered in London, and 42 in total across England and Wales.
We hope Standing Together Sunday will inspire an increasingly passionate response of love and practical action from the Church towards the young people and families whose lives are devastated by the realities of youth violence.
