Coranovirus - COVID-19
God speaking through this storm, calling us to be Christian witnesses in different ways
The Archbishops of Canterbury and York have indicated that for the foreseeable future, there may be no acts of Public Worship held in church. They are encouraging all of us to continue in earnest with our prayers, drawing solace from one another and Christians across the world, who are also praying.
The coronavirus epidemic has meant that the Church of England has felt unable to permit services in their churches.
Acts of worship will be streamed from both inside and outside church buildings. These services can be accessed by Margaret or Jeremys’ webpages.
Remaing together in Christ Jesus
The Holy Eucharist will continue to be celebrated, on behalf of the needs of the nation. Clearly members of the congregation will be unable to received the Sacrament -at least directly.
There is a centuries long ago established recognition, that the benefits of receiving the Sacrament at communion can also be received in a spiritual manner.
Should you want to know more about this, the Church of England has circulated advice.
Should you wish to become more familiar concerning the principle of spiritual communion, we have include the leaflet as a PDF.
