Coronavirus - COVID 19 - guidance for churches from the Church of England

St Mary's Church, Braughing             
St Mary's Church, Furneux Pelham
St Mary's Church, Stocking Pelham

In the light of the HM Government's announcement introducing new measures to slow down the spread of COVID-19, all Sunday and weekday worship services have been suspended for the time being, as have all other events organised by the Church.

However, this doesn't mean no church but it does mean church in a different way! 

If you wish to receive regular reflections, the Sunday bible readings and thoughts around the reading, and other news from the church, please email me here >>> or the office here >>>, or telephone 01920 823832 and we will include your name on the mailing list.

During this challenging time, I will be representing the local worshipping community by continuing to regularly worship and pray in all the churches in the Benefice.  Sadly, this will not be public worship.

Remember that both St Mary's Church, Braughing and St Mary's Church, Furneux Pelham will be open during daylight hours and you are welcome to spend time in those churches.  Additionally, there are prayer trees in both churches where you can write and leave your prayers.

For those of you who pray please do. You may like to use this prayer -

Lord Jesus, 
In the midst of a storm,
You said, 'Peace be still'.
Help our anxious fears subside,
Sustain your church in faith, hope and love,
Protect those who are nursing and caring for the sick,
Bring our nation through this tumult,
Give wisdom to those with heavy responsibilities,
And healing and hope to those who are infected.
In Jesus' name.  AMEN
