Some prayers for this time of uncertainty …

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.

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.
Amen.

God of compassion,
be close to those who are ill, afraid or in isolation.
In their loneliness, be their consolation;
in their anxiety, be their hope;
in their darkness, be their light;
through him who suffered alone on the cross,
but reigns with you in glory,
Jesus Christ our Lord.
Amen.

A church that’s here for you

We are a group of men, women and children (of all ages) who are fascinated by Jesus, and want to make sense of 21st century life by trying to follow him.

Come and help us as we explore together how to be Christians in this place and at this time.

If you have any questions or just want to get in touch, we’d love to hear from you. For contact details of members of the team – please click here for the Contacts Page.
