         The Church after the Pandemic  -  join the discussion!

      The Covid 19 pandemic will overshadow our lives for some time to come. There will be a ‘reset' in society involving                ,,     changing work patterns, for example. Many people have been traumatised by the events of the last year, and the

,,    aftermath will linger for a years to come.

, ,  The vaccination programme is a reason to be cheerful, and eventually physical Church and community activities will be      ,,  ,      possible again. But will they be the same? 

,,   As we emerge, the Church faces new challenges and opportunities. We have discovered new ways of praying,

     new ways of connecting, and these lessons will not be lost!

,,   The time to start envisaging our future starts now, which is why Sue Boon and I are inviting you to join a discussion

     which will be held on Zoom in a couple of weeks time.

       ..........................We will then invite everyone to take part in one or more Zoom meetings.  -

Stay well and pray with us for the ending of this emergency,

for the health workers and carers, and all who are suffering or who are afraid.

 

Now may the God of peace give you peace in believing and trusting in Him.

 

May God bless each one of you till we meet again.

A Prayer in the time of common Plague or Sickness  

          O Almighty God, who in thy wrath didst send a plague upon thine own people in the wilderness,

for their obstinate rebellion against Moses and Aaron; and also, in the time of King David,

didst slay with the plague of pestilence threescore and ten thousand, and yet remembering

    thy mercy didst save the rest: Have pity upon us miserable sinners, who now are visited with

 great sickensss and mortality; that like as thou didst then accept of an atonement, and didst

        command thy destroying Angel to cease from punishing, so it may now please thee to withdraw

from us this plague and grievous sickness; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.                

(from the Book of Common Prayer)
