We are pleased to announce that services have been able to restart at St Mary’s, Magor and are hoping to open a few more of our buildings for worship in the Autumn.
Worship in the Church building will look quite different from what we are used to for the foreseeable future, we won’t be able to sing, communion (when celebrated) will be in one kind only (just the bread) and you’ll need to adhere to social distancing regulations.
To help us navigate this time we are asking people to book ahead so that we aren’t faced with the sad prospect of turning people away at the door. Details can be found on our Worshipping Together page.
We are also aware that many will feel unable to join us at this time and as such we will be continuing with our online Sunday services which can be found on our Worship online page or Youtube Channel and will be continuing to gather online for Morning Prayer on Zoom every Wednesday.
Please join us in continuing to pray 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
