Coronavirus Update

It is with great sadness that St. Margaret's is now closed for public worship until the coronovirus crisis passes. 

During this time Morning Prayer will continue to be offered at 8.30 a.m. daily, starting with the Angelus, when the Church bell is rung. We will pray for our community, the sick and departed.

The Eucharist will also be celebrated regularly in private in Church and filmed.

You can watch a video of Wednesday's April 1st Eucharist on our St Margaret's Facebook page.

We are also using a video conference streaming program called ZOOM to hold virtual

Wednesday and Sunday church services.

We will continue doing this for as long as the emergency lasts.

A former Rector of Iver Heath to be a Bishop.

On April 29th, Downing Street announced the names of two new bishops in the Diocese of Chichester.

                      

One of them is a former Rector of St. Margarets Iver Heath,

The Revd William Hazlewood.

   

Fr. Will was Rector of St. Margarets for 7 years before moving in 2011 to be  the Vicar of Dartmouth and Dittisham in the Diocese of Exeter.

Many members of St, Margaret's remember him and his wife Sophie  

       and wish him well in his new appointment.

From the leaders of St. Peter's & St. Leonard's Churches,

King's Church Iver and St. Margaret's Iver Heath

to our congregations and local community.


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.
