Prayer

Sadly our church is closed at the moment, owing to the coronavirus restrictions. We hope you can use some of these resources to reflect and draw closer to God at home.

A Prayer in a Time of Uncertainty

Dear God, your love for us is unchangeable.
You have welcomed each of us into the family of your Church;
and call us to be Christ’s Body in this place.

Send down your Holy Spirit upon us
at this time of uncertainty and change,
and guide with your heavenly wisdom
those who will discern the way ahead.

Amen
