Singapore – The shootings at the mosques in New Zealand this morning is nothing short of barbaric and inhumane. As the Church in the nation of Singapore, we admonish this cruel act that was unleashed upon innocent lives. We are deeply grieved over the loss of lives and pray that their families will find peace during this time.

We condemn these senseless acts of violence and stand together with our Muslim community in this time.

In such tumultuous times, it’s important for leaders of religious groups to continue to be advocates for unity and harmony, to guard and strengthen the peace we have as a nation in Singapore.
