We continue to worship, grow in faith, share with one another and serve even if it's looking rather different just now!  In all that we are going through we can know that God is faithful and that nothing can separate us from his presence and love shown in Jesus.

With love and prayers,

Church of England prayer for all those affected by Coronavirus:  Keep us, good Lord, under the shadow of your mercy.  Sustain and support the anxious, be with those who care for the sick, and lift up all who are brought low; that we may find comfort knowing that nothing can separate us from your love in Christ Jesus our Lord. Amen
