Corona Virus Update

Last updated 31st May 2020 with details of how we are meeting on-line and the repairs starting in june. 

LADBROKE CHURCH BUILDING IS CLOSED
In line with Government restrictions Ladbroke Church is closed until further notice.
We are joining other churches at their on-services (see links below) and are using Zoom to meet and chat with others in our congregation on Sundays at 10.50am.   Pause and Pray is also happening on the 1st and 3rd Mondays by Zoom. Please email [email protected] to receive details of how to join.

Repairs on the building start mid-June but the inside of the church will be a contractor-only zone and locked when they are not working.  We hope to relax this at weekends when regulations permit.

FREE DAILY WORSHIP PHONE LINE

DAILY HOPE is the FREE dialy dial-in worship phone line set up by the Archbishop of Canterbury offering music, prayers, reflections and full worship services 24 hours a day on 0800 804 8044. It's been set up particularly for those unable to join online church services. Do  please pass this on - particularly to anyone you know who doesn't do online.

PRAYER

Rev Ann says, "I am praying for you all at Ladbroke, both the people who come to church and everyone who lives in the parish" .

Rev Craig says," Thinking of you all at Ladbroke at the moment. I am praying for you all at church, you are all very much in my heart - love from Su too".

You may like to use join us in this prayer (you can download it at the bottom of the page).

   May we who are merely inconvenienced
   remember those whose lives are at stake.

   May we who have no risk factors
   remember the most vulnerable.

   May we who have the luxury of working from home
   remember those who must choose between preserving their health or making ends meet.

   May we who have the flexibilty to care for our children when schools close
   remember those who have no options.

   May we who have to cancel our trips
   remember those who have no safe place to go.

   May we who are losing our margin money in the tumult of the economic market
   remember those who have no margin at all.

   May we who settle in for a quarantine at home
   remember those who have no home.

   As fear grips our country,
   let us choose love.

   During this time when we cannot physically wrap our arms around each other
   let us find ways to be the loving embrace of God to our neighbours.

   Amen
