Coronavirus

During this uneasy time we are continuing to worship and meet together regularly for fellowship and prayer, albeit virtually using the Zoom platform. Our regular Sunday morning time of 10.30am remains consistent with our normal worship, and other meetings are being added to the calendar where possible. For further information about these meetings, please request to join our fellowship's closed Facebook group, or contact our Church Secretary, who will be able to add you to our fellowship's WhatsApp group, or arrange a different way that works for you.

A prayer for all those affected by coronavirus

Keep us, good Lord,
under the shadow of your mercy.
Sustain and support the anxious,
be with those who care for the sick,
and lift up all who are brought low;
that we may find comfort
knowing that nothing can separate us from your love
in Christ Jesus our Lord.
Amen.

Church of England



A coronavirus prayer

God our refuge,
we seek your protection.
Protect the vulnerable from illness:
those who are old and frail,
weakened by years and struggle;
those who care for others,
expending energy and love;
those for whom inability to work
means hardship and poverty.

Protect us
from the greed and suspicion
which snatches at our own security
stock-piling and panic-buying
that deprives others of the necessities of life.

Protect us from the shortsightedness
which sees the germ in our own eyes
and ignores the plagues
of hunger, war and violence
that take so many lives each day.

Protect us from the isolation
that leads to loneliness and despair
denying the interconnectedness
that links us with one another.

God our refuge
in our panic and fear
may we not lose sight of our common humanity
that makes us one people in you. Amen.

John Berry, URC Synod



Don't let your hearts be troubled or afraid.
John 14:27
