working in the community

The church is now closed 

The church is now closed for at least the next three weeks, Judy will  continue to privately say prayers for the community, individuals and the world on your behalf from the Rectory at 8.30 am and 5pm.  If anyone needs help or to talk Rev Judy will be pleased to have your call or e-mail.  01797 270227    

Words from St Paul’s letter to the Romans: Romans 19: 9 - 12
 
Let love be genuine; hate what is evil, hold fast to what is good, love one another with mutual affection; outdo one another in showing honour.  Do not lag in zeal, be ardent in spirit, serve the Lord.  Rejoice in hope, be patient in suffering, persevere in prayer.
 
Thank you to all who have privately prayed from their own homes and many thanks to all who stood outside or at their windows to clap the key workers.    For our prayer this week we remember hospital staff and medical 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 for the coronavirus.  Strengthen them with your Spirit, that through their work many will be restored to health.   This prayer is offered through Jesus Christ our Lord.  Amen
 
May God bless you all and keep you safe.
 


With communal worship unable to take place at the moment, I wondered if some members of ACS might be interested to know that two acts of worship from the Cathedral are being live-streamed each day: 12.30 Holy Communions and 17.30 Evening Prayer. It does not have to be watched live and is available here:
