Prayer Leaflets

Morning Prayer

Personal Prayers

Night Prayer

Praying in a Pandemic is a resource for prayer for those who are unable to meet.

Church of England Resources

The Church of England has a wealth of information, resources and guidance for churches.

The diocese Family Faith page has resources to support families to worship and grow in faith during this time of distancing.

For Children

See our dedicated page for resources for children.

Funerals

The Church of England has issued new advice around funerals in light of the current outbreak of Coronavirus COVID-19 and restrictions.

Sally and the ministry team will ensure this is dealt with sensitively within the restrictions and there is the option of a memorial service later in the year to give thanks with family and friends for a loved one.

Weddings

The coronavirus outbreak affects everything and everyone, including couples due to marry when strict social distancing policies are in place. This Dreams and Disappointments article provides answers to some common questions.

Big Questions

As the weeks go by we hear of the terrible times some have been through with the corona virus and the number of those dying has continued to go up. The regular news stories have made us aware of how quickly things can change for some families.

As Christians we have a hope that looks beyond this ‘transitory life’, but like many without faith, we may put off thinking about how we prepare ourselves practically and spiritually should we fall seriously ill – whether from covid 19, or anything else.

This article was put together by one of my Chapter colleagues with permission to share it, but without naming them!  The choices outlined have been cross-checked and are still current. This information may be helpful to think through in advance, as will our need for spiritual preparation for eternity – this is pertinent for all time.

So, I share this with you in gratitude to my colleague. If there is any of the content that you feel uncertain about, or if you would like to talk any of it through with me, please don’t hesitate to contact me.
