The Bishop of Liverpool, the Rt Rev James Jones said “The 20th anniversary reminds us of the devastation and the tragic killing of Tim Parry and Johnathan Ball. The work of Colin and Wendy Parry and the creation of the Warrington Peace Centre are testimony to humanity’s indomitable spirit and the determination of the people not to allow tragedy to triumph. We hold the town, the Peace Centre and the Parry and Ball families in our prayers as they cherish the love of Tim and Johnathan.”

The Bishop of Warrington, the Rt Rev Richard Blackburn who attended the anniversary commemorations on Saturday added “Despite twenty years passing the Warrington bombing must remind us of our constant quest for peace. So as we remember Johnathan and Tim we thank God for the work of the Peace Centre established in their memory”
