COVID-19 UPDATE

In the light of the government’s easing of restrictions, we are now operating a mixed model of seating. The two side aisles are set aside for those who wish to socially distance for any reason. The central blocks of seating are free of restrictions.

We encourage you to wear a face covering, but this is not mandatory. Congregational singing is now permitted.

Please continue to follow good hygiene and use the sanitiser provided.

Coronavirus Prayers

About the outbreak

Lord Jesus Christ,
you taught us to love our neighbour,
and to care for those in need
as if we were caring for you.
In this time of anxiety, give us strength
to comfort the fearful, to tend the sick,
and to assure the isolated
of our love, and your love,
for your name’s sake.
Amen.

For care home staff & NHS

Gracious God,
give skill, sympathy and resilience
to all who are caring for the sick,
and your wisdom to those searching for a cure.
Strengthen them with your Spirit,
that through their work
many will be restored to health;
through Jesus Christ our Lord.
Amen.

For ourselves

Lord Jesus Christ, you said to your disciples,
‘I am with you always’.
Be with me today, as I offer myself to you.
Hear my prayers for others and for myself,
and keep me in your care.
