A prayer for these times, from Rev Dr Leslie Griffiths
Guidance on Spiritual Communion and Coronavirus


“In all of the current troubles, and they are very serious troubles, looking inwards will only reveal the limits of our own resources, and lead to deeper fear and selfishness.

“Acting in love found from God in Jesus Christ will do the exact reverse. As we look out from ourselves in love, we can enable people to find the place of their nurture, not their historic place but a new place where they meet God and find his consolation.

“As we share our consolation the mother love of God will enfold them. As we love the poor, go and give to a foodbank, call on someone who is isolated, do their shopping, pray with and for them from a distance, we will find that we are deeply consoled by our own gift of consolation."

 -  Justin Welby, Archbishop of Canterbury


Learning God's love and seeking to share it

The Blessed Virgin Mary in Portbury is a living breathing church, not a 900 year old museum. There are strong ties with the adjacent St Mary’s V.A. Primary school. In addition to the many varied church services there is a strong focus on community with activities and events happening regularly.
