Worship during the COVID-19 Pandemic
As we come to terms with the announcement Monday evening, we want to reassure you that our commitment to praying and caring as the Body of Christ will be as strong as ever. Our daily pattern and rhythm of prayer will continue. Please pause to pray at 9am and 5pm with us and we will be sharing in some form a Noon Eucharist and reflection and Sunday worship at 10am. If you need any support or offer help please let us know. We will be setting up pastoral care systems tomorrow.
With best wishes and prayers

We continue to seek Christ’s presence with us – and at Noon we invite you to pause and pray with us – we will resume our celebrating of the Eucharist at Noon as soon as we are able.
You can also listen to the noon daily reflections from the Daily-Reflections page.
Tuesday 24th March: Revd Sam has provided a reflection on the Gospel you can find at https://youtu.be/Cr8XdTtYARo or on the daily reflections page. Please listen and then reflect today on how you can ‘Get up’ and support others and share our common life of faith while physically separated
