Our prayers continue to be with those who have been deeply affected by coronavirus, those who are or have been sick, those isolated, for health specialists and authorities who are combatting the spread of infection and of course for all who at this time are feeling anxious.

During the current coronavirus situation, please note that St Mary’s & St Leonard’s are closed.  All services are suspended.  If you would like Revd David Rice to say a prayer for you at his regular Morning Prayer, please email him: rector@marylemore.co.uk

Prayer for the Week :

Lord Jesus Christ, you taught us to love our neighbour, and to care for those in need as if we were caring for you. In this time of anxiety, give us strength to comfort the fearful, to tend the sick, and to assure the isolated of our love, and your love, for your name’s sake. Amen.

David  is sending regular updates via email; see the bottom of the page for the links.

Finally, remember that, wherever you are, church isn’t so much about a physical building but about people.  We are the church wherever we find ourselves and take God’s love into those places.
