Covid 19 - Update

Our church buildings have been closed since the Prime Minister’s announcement on 23rd March. As the lockdown is being unwound we have been working on the arrangements to allow the safe use of our church buildings as soon as we are allowed to open them . 

In the meantime the worship of God continues in our hearts and homes.  

Prayer for use during the Coronavirus crisis

The following prayer is offered for everyone to use.

Keep us, good Lord,
under the shadow of your mercy
in this time of uncertainty and distress.
Sustain and support the anxious and fearful,
and lift up all who are brought low;
that we may rejoice in your comfort
knowing that nothing can separate us from your love
in Christ Jesus our Lord.

Promoting a Safer Church

The care and protection of children, young people and adults involved in church activities is the responsibility of everyone who participates in the life of the church and is of the utmost of importance to us.  Please see our statement on promoting a safer church which tells you how to get support and what to do if you have any concerns.  Our parish Safeguarding Officer is Sarah Croft.
