Collect

Lord God,

your Son left the riches of heaven

and became poor for our sake:

when we prosper save us from pride,

when we are needy save us from despair,

that we may trust in you alone;

through Jesus Christ our Lord.

Amen.

  

 

Please pray for those who are ill

 

Karen Goodall Brown

We remember those whom we know,

who are suffering in sickness or adversity,

and those who especially need our prayers at this time.

Also the families of those who have died.

Regulations around Public Worship

 

Regulations around Public Worship changed on 19th July.

The Church of England guidelines were recently updated, so we have not been able to undertake a full risk assessment process yet.

 

Please continue to behave cautiously when meeting in our church building. We will ask people/groups to be spaced at 2m where practicable. Face coverings will not be compulsory by law, but you might choose to wear one. We expect that there will be singing on 25th July but that will be in the context of any new guidelines issued between now and then.

 

Procedures will be examined and revised beginning the week of 26th July.
