CORONAVIRUS (COVID-19) - GUIDANCE FOR PARISHES 

All restrictions have now been lifted and we are able to welcome people to the church as we normally did, however we understand that some people still feel deeply affected by Covid-19 and we will respect anyone's personal prefrence to continue to wear a mask or distance themselves from others. 

The Dean of Southwark has written the following prayer which you may wish to use:

We continue to keep Ukraine in our prayers:

God of peace and justice,

We pray for the people of Ukraine today.

We pray for peace and the laying down of weapons.

We pray for all those who fear for tomorrow,

that your Spirit of comfort would draw near to them.

We pray for those with power over war and peace,

for wisdom, discernment and compassion to guide their decisions.

Above all, we pray for all your precious children, at risk and in fear,

that you would hold and protect them.

We pray in the name of Jesus, the Prince of Peace. Amen
