St Mary the Virgin, Westerham
At the moment we are adjusting to what it means to be "church" in this new environment.
Following the Prime Minister’s announcement on 23rd March 2020, supported by the Archbishops and Bishops of the Church of England, our church building is closed for public worship, for private prayer and for visitors. However, we are providing resources to enable people to worship from home:
We invite the community to say morning prayer (8.30 am) and evening prayer (5.00pm) in their homes at the same times Monday to Saturday (See below).
On Sundays I am sharing some "Thoughts on a Sunday" (see below) on the Bible passage(s) of the day.
We link to services streamed from our Diocese and the Church of England as they are announced.
We are also building a page with resources to help you "Worship From Home
We are looking at how we can provide spiritual and pastoral support to our congregations and to Westerham in these unsettling times.
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.
