We know there are many issues that arise from national and government guidance, and that things are change from time to time – please be assured that we’re working on this and we’ll stay in touch with you. In all of this, we have three key aims:

Keeping people well keeping people praying Keeping people connected

Please make sure that you keep an eye on the Church of England website  for all the latest guidance for churches and parishes relating to Coronavirus - and if you have specific queries you need help with, or you're in need of support, please speak with your Churchwarden, or Priest, in the first instance.

If you'd like to receive the latest updates from the Diocese on this issue, there's a special mailing list you can sign up to here (but, of course, we'll continue to highlight any key information in the weekly Briefing mailing).

PRAYER FOR 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 all who are brought low;
that we may find comfort
knowing that nothing can separate us from your love
in Christ Jesus our Lord.
Amen
