We are sorry to say that, in common with other churches, we have had to suspend worship at our church due to the Coronavirus but we will let you know as soon as we re-open. Our Pilots company, Art and Friendship group and Community Cafe are also suspended.
In the meantime, as Psalm 46 says, ‘God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble.’
And so, as the world deals with Coronavirus Covid 19, let us pray with people left unwell, beckoned by death or bereaved; people providing professional health care and advice, looking after loved ones at home or working to create treatments and cures; people shaping the response of nations and neighbourhoods, of commerce and industry, of service and voluntary organisations and of communities of faith;
people who are anxious or afraid, alone or isolated:
Living, loving God, we praise you,
and through times of peril we lean into you,
for in Jesus Christ you have trodden paths as difficult as ours,
revealing there a love that nothing defeats, a love that bears us through.
Even as we strive to behave responsibly and to care reliably,
so we feel after you that in these uncertain times we might trust you are with us,
our refuge and strength,
and our faith, hope and love might be renewed,
through Jesus Christ, Amen.
