A Prayer for Ukraine to be said in Church whenever the Peace Candle is lit.

God of peace and justice,
we pray for the people of Ukraine today.
We pray for peace and the laying-down of weapons.
We pray for all those who fear for tomorrow,
that your spirit of comfort would draw near to them.
We pray for those with power over war or peace,
for wisdom, discernment and compassion
to guide their decisions.
Above all, we pray for all your precious children, at-risk and in fear,
that you would hold and protect them.
We pray in the name of Jesus, the Prince of Peace.   Amen.

Please read the latest note about COVID measures (27th June 2022) see below.

Face Coverings ...Church exterior (in perspective)

Following much thoughtful discussion, face masks are now optional and no longer required in church.

There are some amongst us with particular vulnerabilities, and with this in mind the following changes are proposed...

  • At the 10:00am Sunday service, the right-hand side of the Lady Chapel will be reserved for those who wish to continue to wear a mask and remain more distanced.
  • At the 08:00am Sunday service, with lower numbers attending, the back of the left side of the church will be for those who are more comfortable using a mask and keeping more distanced from others.

Cases of Covid continue and we are reminded that the use of face coverings is largely to benefit others rather than ourselves.

With thanks for your continuing kindness and understanding.  And we would like to reiterate that everyone who joins us – whether on-line or on-site – is equally welcome and valued as a member of our church family.
