We are holding our community and the world in our prayers during these extraordinary times. Please contact us if you require practical, emotional or spiritual support and we will do our best to support you or point you in the direction of someone who can.

We encourage everyone who is visiting our church building to continue doing what they can to reduce the spread of COVID-19. We recommend face-coverings, social distancing, ventilation and frequent use of sanitiser when possible.

We are distributing a newsletter to members and friends of our church at the end of each week for the foreseeable future, particularly to support those who do not feel ready to return to our Church building at present.

You can also watch updates and reflections from our minister, Rev Patrick Stonehewer here.

We pray:

God of all hope we call on you today.
We pray for those who are living in fear:
Fear of illness, fear for loved ones, fear of other’s reactions to them.
May your Spirit give us a sense of calmness and peace.

We pray for your church in this time of uncertainty.
For those people who are worried about attending worship.
For those needing to make decisions in order to care for others
For those who will feel more isolated by not being able to attend.
Grant us your wisdom.

Holy God, we remember that you have promised that
Nothing will separate us from your love – demonstrated to us in Jesus Christ.
Help us turn our eyes, hearts and minds to you.

Amen
