On Friday the Welsh Government announced that churches would now be able to open for ‘private prayer’. However before this can happen a detailed risk assessment has to be undertaken and a number of changes made to our buildings. We will also need to ensure that volunteers are on hand at all times to ensure social distancing, hygiene etc.
We are currently undertaking the necessary assessments and, when we are able to do so, will re-open some of our church buildings at specific times of the week. More information to be announced soon.
Currently there have been no announcements regarding the use of our buildings for public worship, in the mean time please continue to join us on Sundays on our Worship online page or Youtube Channel for our Sunday worship and also for Morning Prayer on Zoom every Wednesday.
Our Curate Samuel shared this message as we are unable to use our buildings to gather for public worship.
Please join us in praying for those infected by coronavirus (Covid-19) around the world, for those who care for them, for health specialists and authorities who are combatting the spread of infection, and of course for all who at this time are feeling anxious, especially those most vulnerable and for those with friends and family in countries that are worst affected.
Dear Father, who created us, and redeemed us,
and who has promised us your love,
be with us in a time of danger and of worry.
May those who suffer, or who are ill, know the blessing of your grace,
while we who are well be inspired by your Spirit to be wise and to be servants,
working for the healing and wholeness of all, each in our own way.
Keep us calm and cautious, strong and open to service,
so that we take care of those around us, and also of ourselves.
We ask this in the name of Jesus.
Prayer by Bishop Gregory
Bishop of St Asaph
