The following news update from The Church of England is sad but not unexpected:
In light of the Government guidance around non-essential contact, the Archbishops of Canterbury and York have issued advice that public worship is suspended until further notice. Churches should be open where possible but with no public worship services taking place.
This means that there will be no church services in our church buildings across the Crosslacon Parish for a while. However, our worship of God, and our care for each other, and our communities continues in and through different mediums.
In the meantime, I will be updating our parish Facebook page regularly at Crosslacon Parish and we are hosting a live steamed service every Sunday on Facebook at 10:30am. Do come and be part of our worshipping community. The service will be available to watch later on our website and on Facebook.
Do get in touch if I can be of any help or support at this time ….
A prayer from the New Zealand Prayer Book for People Facing Great Uncertainty
God of the present moment,
God who in Jesus stills the storm
and soothes the frantic heart;
bring hope and courage to all
who wait or work in uncertainty.
Bring hope that you will make them the equal
of whatever lies ahead.
Bring them courage to endure what cannot be avoided,
for your will is health and wholeness;
you are God, and we need you.

Worshipping in Older Adult residential settings
In September we began a monthly service in Wyndham Manor (the first Wednesday of every month at 2pm) and Stafford Court (the first Tuesday of every month at 2pm).
Each month friends from the different churches across our Coast to Fells Mission Community will be taking turns to lead and facilitate the service.
