When our churches are open again, we will need volunteers to help with the flowers at Findon Church on a rota basis. Please speak to Helena for more details.

We may not be able to access our churches in the way we are used to, but we continue to function as a community. 

Now more than ever we need the love of God and each other.  We are working hard to develop ways in which

we can continue to worship and to meet the needs of the church family and the community in our parish. 

We are working on our website and our new Facebook page and more information will be added over the coming weeks. 

“Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength . . .

Love your neighbour as yourself. There is no commandment greater than these.”

At this challenging time we are united in our prayer

and in caring for vulnerable members of our community through practical acts of service.

Helena and Colin continue to pray for everyone.

If you have any specific prayer requests, please contact the Rectory.

O Lord Jesus Christ, since I cannot now receive Thee sacramentally, 

I humbly pray Thee that Thou wouldest come spiritually to my soul.

Come, Lord Jesus, come and cleanse me, heal me, strengthen me,

and unite me to Thyself, now and for evermore. Amen

(From the Oxford Movement Centenary Prayer Book)

A 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.
