"Zimbabwe will be saved" was the song sung spontaneously outside Southwark Cathedral after the Bishop of Southwark had called for urgent prayer and support for the people of Zimbabwe.
"Aware of the deep suffering of Zimbabwe and its people, who have lived for too long with fear, violence, abuse and hardship, we call on the people of our Diocese to pray for a new dawning of justice, peace and freedom for our brothers and sisters there" says the statement issued by Bishop Tom Butler and his Area Bishops.
Southwark's Anglican leaders give thanks for the prophetic courage of religious leaders who have helped to keep a vision of God's kingdom alive in the hearts of the people through the darkest of times. They also express awareness of the past injustices, hunger and the failure of British leaders to say enough.
The Zimbabwe Christian Fellowship Choir, made up of exiles separated from their families, sang at the service.
