Important Notice (Sorry that it's long!)
We need to let you know that all church services and meetings at St Columba's have been suspended until further notice.
This decision has been made following the advice that has been issued this afternoon by the Archbishops of Canterbury and York. This is based on the Government's guidance around non-essential contact. (More information here: https://www.churchofengland.org/…/coronavirus-covid-19-guid…)
This is a difficult time for many of us.
Do continue to pray and support people by phone calls, and offers of help as appropriate within government guidelines. We are people of hope, even in uncertain days. God is with us.
Just to finish, this is a prayer that has been given us by the Church of England. Perhaps you will find it helpful as you pray for yourself and others.
A PRAYER FOR ALL THOSE AFFECTED BY CORONAVIRUS
Keep us, good Lord,
under the shadow of your mercy.
Sustain and support the anxious,
be with those who care for the sick,
and lift up all who are brought low;
that we may find comfort
knowing that nothing can separate us from your love
in Christ Jesus our Lord.Amen.
Please note that Messy Church this Sunday (March 15th) This is because we want to make sure that we look after our Messy Church community and out team as best we can at the current time.
