St. Matthews

From the Church of England “Prayers for use in the Coronavis Outbreak”

For those who are ill

Merciful God,

we entrust to your tender care

those who are ill or in pain,

knowing that whenever danger threatens

your everlasting arms

are there to hold them safe.

Comfort and heal them,

and restore them to health and strength;

through Jesus Christ our Lord.

Amen.

The regular three campaigns are still available; The first is the regular Lockdown down campaign to ensure that the churches running costs are met during this difficult time, The Second is for St. Matthew’s Sponsored Child, Many of us donated on a regular basis to the sponsored Child when we were in Church, so this is an opportunity to continue those regular donations.  The Third is the regular Malawi Hospital Charity that we have donated to on the first Sunday in the month for many years.  We hope to encourage once a month donations.  For details of how to give see our giving page here.

Latest Coronavirus Advice

Government guidance on Lock Down 3 allows people to leave home “to attend or visit a place of worship for communal worship”.  Although some churches are closing and moving to digital services we are confident that St. Matthews is sufficiently spacious to allow us to continue our services at the current level.   So there will be a services on Sunday at 4pm, and on Friday, at 12 noon.

The Church will also continue to be open for Private prayer between 10am and 11am, Tuesday to Friday.



If you are unsure about attending the church the Phone-in Services will continue on Sunday at 10:30, and on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday at 8pm

All this information is liable to change at any time, if additional guidance becomes available we will try to keep you informed.

Of course if you are clinically vulnerable to Coronavirus or in a household or bubble with a possible or confirmed Coronvirus infection you should not attend Church.

Guidance for attending church in these times can be found on our coronavirus page
