Prayer about the outbreak: ‘Keep us, good Lord, under the shadow of your mercy in this time of uncertainty and distress. Sustain and support the anxious and fearful, and lift up all who are brought low; that we may rejoice in your comfort knowing that nothing can separate us from your love in Christ Jesus our Lord. Amen’.

Daily Hope’ is a free national phone-line aimed particularly at the over 75s who don’t have access to the internet. Research indicates that some three million people – particularly those in this age group – have no, or very irregular, access to the internet. The line will be available 24 hours a day on 0800 804 8044View Page. Callers will hear a special greeting from the Archbishop of Canterbury before being able to choose from a range of options, including Prayer During the Day and Night Prayer updated daily, from Common Worship, and a recording of the Church of England’s weekly national online service. A section called Hymn Line will also offer callers a small selection of hymns, updated daily. An option entitled ‘Hymns We Love’, provides a hymn and reflection and is based on an initiative by ‘Connections’, a group focused on this age group.

Please pray for Beth’s Ministry here at St. Nicholas’ that she can lead the church and the community. Rev’d Keith Thornborough, (also a full time senior nurse), and retirees, Rev’d Alan Brooks, Rev’d Bill Matthews and Rev’d Chris Jones together with Lay Readers Jennifer Levick and Bill Mainey play a huge part in our services. We thank God for all these dedicated people for their continuing time and contribution to the life of St. Nicholas’ Church.
