Open Online, Closed Building

Coronavirus COVID-19 – Update

DSC_0399The Wednesday evening home group meets on ‘Zoom’.

The Church continues to be alive and active, but our buildings must be closed

We are seeing a huge increase in the number of people falling sick with COVID-19. We must distance ourselves from one another and prevent the spread of infection in order to save lives.

Therefore, as well as public worship being suspended, St Mary’s and all church buildings in the Church of England are now closed.

Our worship of God and our care for each other continue but cannot be done in the church building.

Subscribe to our newsletter for regular information about St Mary’s online worship and other news.

“Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength . . . Love your neighbour as yourself. There is no commandment greater than these.”

To protect the vulnerable amongst us, please do not leave your home except for essential trips.

A prayer:
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.
