In view of the Government announcements of a new four week lockdown we are now having to suspend our services in church. The church will however be open each day for private prayer. We are also introducing other opportunities for us to pray together:
Praying Together each week - Within the benefice many of us have adopted the practice of pausing wherever we are to say the Lord’s Prayer at 12 o’clock each day. It connects us with one another and brings us into the conscious awareness of the presence of God.
Alongside this we will be giving a simple suggestion for each day of something you might like to pray about as we pray together for the world in all its trauma and anguish and also as we give thanks for God’s continued presence and faithfulness to us in this time of uncertainty and difficulty.
On the website there will be a separate news item each week with prayer ideas for each day that week.
The livestreams are continuing with the following services being made available via the St Ed's Facebook page:
