Covid 19 / Coronavirus

With the likely easing of restrictions, and the partial re-opening of churches but not for public worship (except funerals)we are asked to observe the call by Bishop Robert to be united in helping those who are in isolation. Speaking to BBC Spotlight, he said, ‘Isolation is the biggest cause of people being mentally ill. We’ve got to look out for people… we’ve got to come together.’

The webpage below provides helpful advice about:
• Baptism, confirmation and the laying-on of hands, including prayer ministry
• Supporting people who are self-isolating
• Supporting the wider community

God of compassion, be close to those who are ill, afraid or in isolation. In their loneliness, be their consolation; in their anxiety, be their hope; in their darkness, be their light; through him who suffered alone on the cross, but reigns with you in glory, Jesus Christ our Lord.
