Welcome to our website!

As you will have heard through the news, places of worship will be closing for services until this new lockdown is ended, which we hope will be in four weeks’ time, at the beginning of December. We will continue to record sermons and messages, so please be sure to visit our website and Youtube channel every week to view these; there will also be content added regularly on our Facebook page, so do follow us there too, if you would like to. Our monthly Central Prayer meetings continue on the first Wednesday of each month at 8pm via Zoom – please join us if you are able to, along with our regular Wednesday and Friday Morning Prayer at 8am, also via Zoom.
 
The churches will be open for private prayer on Wednesdays and Sundays, as they were before. People are very welcome to use the space for personal prayer and reflection – please follow the safe space guidance at the door.

A prayer for those in isolation

God of compassion, be close to those who are ill, afraid or in isolation. In their loneliness, be their consolation; in their anxiety, be their hope; in their darkness, be their light; through him who suffered alone on the cross, but reigns with you in glory, Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

For carers, hospital staff and researchers

Gracious God, give skill, sympathy and resilience to all who are caring for the sick, and your wisdom to those searching for a cure. Strengthen them with your Spirit, that through their work many will be restored to health, through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
