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.
"Let the door of our heart be open to receive, O Christ,
the soul of our being unlocked, to welcome you;
and the gate of our life flung wide, for your entering in."

Please stay safe and well and be assured of our prayers for you and your families.
God of compassion,
be close to those who are ill, afraid, in isolation
or concerned about their jobs and businesses
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.
