You can pray anywhere

You do not have to be in a church building to be part of the church:

  • Listen out for details of services on TV & Radio and join with others all around the country when they are aired
  • Hunt out prayer resources online (the Church of England Website is a good place to start) and join us in daily prayer

A prayer for all those affected by Coronavirus:

Keep us, good Lord, under the shadow of your mercy.
Sustain and support the anxious,
be with those who care for the sick,
and lift up those who are brought low;
that we may find comfort knowing that nothing
can separate us from your love in Christ Jesus our Lord
