WHEN IS THE CHURCH BUILDING OPEN?
Now the main contractors are gone, we are open again every day between 10am and 4pm but if you are making a special jorner check the services and events calendar to check there isn't something happening that would hinder your visit.

1. Do NOT come if you have any covid symptoms or should be self-isolating
2. Give other people space
3. Check in via the QR code or register is recommended  (we are keeping a list of the regulars at services so they do not need to Check in)

   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
