Friends, following the latest Government announcement on 23 Mar we are working on plans to offer help, support and prayers, as we journey on together, in the current crisis facing us all . We are all coming to terms with how we all going to cope with the huge challenge . Please note that all of our churches are closed until further notice.

We offer you this prayer at the current time .
Prayer Loving God,
We pray for all those who are suffering because of the coronavirus, may they know your healing power.
When we are afraid for ourselves and our loved ones, give us your strength and courage.
When we feel alone and isolated, reassure us with a sense of your presence. Give wisdom to those in authority and may our community work together for the good of all. We give thanks for those who care for others and ask you to bless them in all they do. We ask this in the name of Jesus, healer and physician. Amen
