It is with a heavy heart that the PCCs and I have taken the decision to cease in-person services in our church buildings for the remainder of this month, due to the current surge in cases of Covid 19 and the extreme pressure on the NHS.
The PCCs will review the situation at the end of January for February.
We want the word to go out that we are here for you at this time of great uncertainty.
We have made resources available online and in a read-at-home sheet (weekly bulletin). This way people can share in the ‘Same story – different place and time’.
Mr Vicarage and I invite you join us to pray each day at 12 noon and 6pm. I have posted short prayers on the website (Prayers at Home). This way we can ‘Pray together at the same time, in different places’.
Every Sunday there is also a live service online with Rev'd Katrina. Please click on this link for details of all Sunday Services
If you are anxious, unwell or fearful for yourself or someone else, please do not hesitate to get in touch with me or any of the ministry team, our Pastoral co-ordinator or our administrator by phone or email (contact).
We are definitely still here for you.
God of compassion,
be close to those who are ill, afraid or in isolation.
In their loneliness, be their consolation;
in their anxiety, be their hope;
in their darkness, be their light;
through him who suffered alone on the cross,
but reigns with you in glory,
Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
