CHURCH SERVICES AND EVENTS

 

On Tuesday 17 March 2020, the Archbishops issued a statement saying that until further notice public worship both midweek and on Sundays must not be held. Therefore our regular services held at St Mary’s and the Wesley Centre will not be held until further notice.  We will find new ways to keep in touch and pray.

 

Keep well, stay safe and look out for your neighbours.

 

NOTICE FOR NORTH NARSTON CHURCH 21st March 2020

Church building is still open

During this distressing and difficult time, the Church building will remain open through the day. You are very welcome to come in, to spend time in this historic place and to pray and reflect. Please continue to follow guidance on good hygiene.

The Archbishops of Canterbury and York have said: Being a part of the Church of England is going to look very different in the days ahead. Our life is going to be less characterised by attendance at church on Sunday, and more characterised by the prayer and service we offer each day. We may not be able to pray with people in the ways that we are used to, but we can certainly pray for people. And we can certainly offer practical care and support.

 

Prayer Requests:

If you want us to pray for you, please email your prayer requests to petra.elsmore@gmail.com We would pray for you during the week.

 

Prayer

The following prayer may help you to respond to the present crisis:

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.
