A spokesperson for the Bishops’ Conference of England and Wales said:
“The massacre perpetrated on the worshippers of All Saints’ Church in Peshawar was horrific and our thoughts and prayers are with all those affected by this tragedy.
“Christians show great courage in giving witness to their faith in Pakistan and Sunday’s attack is a terrible demonstration of the threat facing Christians and other minorities from terrorists and their violent ideology.
“The Pakistani government has an obligation to ensure that Pakistani Christians and other minorities are protected from further atrocities.”
