Are you feeling a bit knocked about by the phenomenal speed of change in our lives at the moment? I certainly am. so what do we do?

Normally we would be called to come together and pray.  As we can't physically meet together at the moment,  that doesn’t mean that we stop worshipping or praying. Click here for our Online Services. If we have the use of a mobile phone, or even a computer – and everyone who is reading this does have at least one of those things, we can still pray together ‘digitally’. If you look for the App ‘Daily Prayer’ , you can download this for free and it will give you Morning Prayer, Evening Prayer and Night Prayer (or Compline as it is still known as by many). ALL the readings are there, with the Psalms and the Church Songs (known as Canticles), as well as some prayers. It is a brilliant help to Daily Prayer.

 

Oh, and just a quick extra. Don’t feel that you can’t continue with your financial giving to God and his church here in Chesterton just because you’re not in the actual building. Please feel free to leave your offering at the Vicarage, in one of the Church envelopes or in an ordinary envelope, and I will make sure that it gets to the right person, or bring it along when the Church building is open. Sadly the coronavirus doesn’t seem to make our bills go away!

More news soon.

God bless,

Simon
