The National Council of Churches of Singapore (NCCS) denounces the unprecedented terrorist attacks across Paris on Friday, 13 November 2015 that killed 129 people. Such unconscionable acts that result in the death of scores of innocent civilians are inhumane, barbaric and cowardly. The Council urges Christians to pray for the victims and their families and for the safety of all who are vulnerable and fearful. In these turbulent times, the Council also urges faith communities to be vigilant and to work with one another to promote justice and peace. NCCS will continue to work closely with religious leaders from various faiths in Singapore to build trust and confidence in community relationships.
