9.30 am Sunday Services will be delivered via a Live Stream from the St John's Facebook page (link on the bottom right of this page). Join us at 9.30am, as we host a revised Sunday service, starting with Mothering Sunday this Sunday, 21 March. Everyone that we have email addresses for will receive a guide on how to do this if you have not used Facebook before.
Links to videos and hymns we all know (with lyrics, no excuses!) are available on a new YouTube Channel we've created. The latest content is below:
And here is a message from Archbishop Glenn Davies, which was released today.
Liturgy for Anxious Hearts and Minds, by @billupsdrew
For those who are sick, we pray that your healing would quickly appear.
For those at elevated risk, we pray your wisdom and protection.
For leaders in our communities, business, churches, local and national government, we pray for the discernment and responsible action in quickly shifting circumstances.
For children disrupted from school routines and intuiting family stress, we pray for your reassurance and blessing.
For the small business owners, artists, and musicians that give shape to our community, we pray for your provision and persistence.
For those feeling lonely and constrained in a time of social distancing, we pray that you would provide connection and community.
For those struggling with uncertainty, we pray for your persistent presence.
For those afraid, your strong shalom.
Send your Spirit, full of comfort.
Speak to us softly, dear Lord.
Quiet us in your love – with the confidence that you hear us and are near.
May you lighten our hearts and enable us to take these strange days – however long they last – with the quiet resolve of people aligned with your purposes and confident that your will be done.
Lord, send your Spirit, full of comfort.
