A Prayer for the Vacancy

Generous God, you care for your children by sending a shepherd to guide us along the way of life and discipleship. As we prepare for the coming of our new Vicar, Revd. Sharon Greensmith, support and strengthen by your Holy Spirit the ministry of our Church Wardens, PCC and visiting clergy during this time of vacancy. Help us to look forward with joyful hope to all that we will achieve together in building up your Kingdom in this parish and may the light of your countenance ever shine upon us and bless us. In Jesus’ name.  Amen.

A Prayer at this time

Father God, the rainbow you created is a sign of hope at this time of uncertainty. Like its colours we pray that we, in all shades of difference, may come together as one family of faith to love and support each other through these times of anxiety and distress. Stay by our side and bring us safely to the beginning of each new day.  Amen.

Wearing of face masks

It is a mandatory requirement that face coverings be worn by all those attending a place of worship, including ministers, worshippers, staff, volunteers, contractors and visitors, where there may be other people present; remembering that they are mainly intended to protect other people, not the wearer, from coronavirus COVID-19 and that they are not a replacement for physical distancing and regular hand washing.
