The World Methodist Council (WMC) strongly condemns the terror attacks on worshippers gathered for
Easter Sunday Services on the holiest day of the Christian calendar in Sri Lanka. Churches in Kochichika,
Negombo, and Batticaloa as well as hotels in the capital, Colombo were targeted.
The General Secretary of the WMC, Bishop Ivan Abrahams said; “these attacks at Easter is a cowardly
deed against innocent civilians. The WMC stands in solidarity with the people of Sri Lanka.” He further
conveyed sincere condolences to the families who lost loved ones, wished all injured a speedy recovery
and called for prayers for all those affected by these senseless acts of violence.
