Coronavirus (COVID-19)

We are praying for those effected by the virus, and for those who are working hard to care for those who are sick. If you are feeling isolated and would like to talk to someone or would like to request prayers, then please ring the mobile number on 07547729017, and someone will get back to you as soon as possible. If you need practical help, for instance if you are self-isolating and need shopping we will try to help. We want to look out for and support the most vulnerable members of our community in Kirton.

A Prayer

Keep us, good Lord,
under the shadow of your mercy
in this time of uncertainty and distress.
Sustain and support the anxious and fearful,
and lift up all who are brought low;
that we may rejoice in your comfort
knowing that nothing can separate us from your love
in Christ Jesus our Lord.
Amen.
