The Archbishops and Bishops of the Church of England have urged everyone to follow the instructions given by the Prime Minister to stay in their homes in a national effort to limit the transmission of the coronavirus (COVID-19). Our churches have now been closed, but we are still here to offer care and support
27 Peace I leave with you; my peace I give to you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled, and do not let them be afraid.
It doesn’t matter if you normally attend church or not, we are here for you. We can offer telephone support, a listening ear, pastoral and spiritual support and resources…

Lord Jesus Christ,
You taught us to love our neighbour
And to care for those in need
As if we were caring for you.
In this time of anxiety, give us strength
To comfort the fearful, to tend the sick,
And to assure the isolated
Of our love, and your love,
For your name’s sake.
