to our congregations and local community.

This Mothering Sunday, 22nd March, we are joining churches up and down the country for a National Day of Prayer and Action put forward by Churches Together in England in light of the Coronavirus pandemic. At such a time as this, when so many are fearful and there is great uncertainty, we are reminded of our dependence on our loving Heavenly Father and the future that he holds.

At 7pm this Sunday, light a candle in the windows of your homes as a visible symbol of the light of life, Jesus Christ, our source and hope in prayer.


No matter where we are, we all have the great privilege and freedom to be able to call upon God, individually and corporately, for healing in our nation. We would pray for all in leadership at this time, making decisions about the containment of the Coronavirus, for those working in health and social care, and especially for the most vulnerable, whether elderly or those with underlying health conditions.

There are already stories being told of wonderful acts of kindness across neighbourhoods and
we would like to commend the work Iver Parish Council has done in the recent days with their Community Kindness Kits and the outpouring of love from the community.

Alongside your prayers, we're encouraging you to take the opportunity to telephone or email someone who is isolated, buy some additional food for our local foodbank in Slough (please check their website about what they need: slough.foodbank.org.uk), or offer to deliver shopping for an elderly neighbour. We may not be able to touch physically, but we can make connections in so many other ways.

In the meantime, do please attend to all 
the government health advice  that has been and will continue to be issued, and look out for resources from your home church teams. We do seem to be in unusual times, and wisdom and flexibility about worship gatherings are a key part of our Christian discipleship during this period.


We note that this call to prayer and action comes on Mothering Sunday: a time of thankfulness, remembering especially mothers who have served us, often in very costly ways. It is also a very mixed day for many. For some the remembrance is painful, and for others Mothering Sunday is a reminder of disappointment or loss. In many ways, this period under the shadow of the coronavirus will be prompting similarly diverse reactions and so it seems especially appropriate that the call to prayer is made this Sunday.

At this time of uncertainty join in with the National Day of Prayer and Action, lighting a candle of hope.

                                            “Cast all your anxiety on him, because he cares for you''  1 Peter 5:7

A prayer to pray daily

                  

                         Father in heaven, grant comfort to all who are suffering.

                         Give them hope, when dejected

                         And when alone assure them of the prayerful support of holy people.

                         We ask this through Christ our Lord.

                         Give them courage, when afraid,    

                         Give them patience, when afflicted,

                         Give them hope, when dejected

                         And when alone assure them of the prayerful support of holy people.

                         We ask this through Christ our Lord.
