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.

Please continue to use the hand sanitiser provided, and bear in mind the benefits of social distancing. Should you wish, for your own peace of mind, to keep the seat(s) next to you vacant, please use the coloured cards on the bookcase to indicate your wishes to other worshippers.
