I hope you and your family are all well.
I am writing this Pastoral Letter just after the Prime Minister’s announcement. Whatever the consequences of what he has said for us as a Christian community will become clear as the days wear on. The attached booklet will be of use to all of us as part of our daily prayer pattern. It goes without saying that prayer is at the centre of our Christian life. Prayer involves both talking to and listening to God. There is no special formula, as in any conversation.
I know that many of you have joined in with our daily services on Facebook Live. As I said last week there will be a slight change in the pattern. There will be no afternoon services Monday to Thursday; Morning Prayer at 10.00am will continue Monday to Friday; Afternoon prayer on Fridays at 4.00pm. Our Sunday services will continue on Facebook at 10.30am and 4.00pm.
Whether our Sunday 10.30 morning services in Church will be able to continue will depend upon what transpires over the next week. Tomorrow’s service will go ahead as planned.
With God’s blessing,
