IMPORTANT INFORMATION Church opening during the coronavirus emergency All churches are now closed for public worship in accordance with the Archbishops’ instructions. This means our usual Sunday and Wednesday services/prayer fellowship will not be taking place, and there will be no Morning Prayers at St Paul’s on Mon/Tue/Wed. However, in accordance with the Archbishops’ wishes and in order to continue to witness to our friends and neighbours, both our churches will be open at specific times from Monday 23 March as follows: St Paul’s: Church open for prayer 10-11am Mon-Sun. St Andrew’s: Church open for prayer 2-3pm Mon-Sat. and Sun: 11am-Noon Please note: this is not public worship. There will be prayers prayed by the minister on behalf of us all during the opening times. PLEASE PRAY AT HOME DURING THIS TIME if you can, so that we will all be praying together. People are welcome to come into church to pray during the hour it is open but must wash hands on arrival and sit apart from others. If you are in an ‘at risk’ category, we encourage you, in line with government guidance, not to come. We will try to live-stream Sunday services whenever possible: look for our Facebook page (St Pauls Kersal and St Andrews Carr Clough). Contact a member of the clergy or Anthea to receive a copy of Prayer for the Day.
Prayer Keep us, good Lord, under the shadow of your mercy in this time of uncertainty and distress. Sustain and support the anxious and fearful, and lift up all who are brought low; that we may rejoice in your comfort knowing that nothing can separate us from your love in Christ Jesus our Lord. Amen.
