The future of Zoom & Facebook services

The celebration of the Eucharist on Wednesdays has returned to zoom for the time being.

For the forseeable future the 8 a.m. and 6 p.m. services on Sundays

will also continue to be held on Zoom.

We aim to return the daily services of Mattins and Evening Prayer

to the Church building soon.

 

If we can be of any assistance to you or someone you know, please contact Fr Andrew.

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)
