Sunday Link

Dear all,

I have had several emails from the Church of England and the diocese of York this week, and they say “it is with a heavy heart that they have had to suspend normal Sunday and weekday activities for the time being”.

They go on to say that the “church is not closed, rather it is an opportunity to pray, witness and serve, albeit in ways we are not used to”.

In the next few weeks I will be looking at putting something on the internet, and a weekly news-letter for those without access to the internet. I will also be creating a couple of leaflets, of prayers for this time, and simple prayer services that can be done at home.

A further quote from one of the letters this week.

“We have called, along with our fellow church leaders, for a day of prayer and action this coming Sunday - Mothering Sunday (22nd March). Mothering Sunday has always been both a day of celebration for many and a sensitive and emotional day for some. Wherever you are this Sunday please do join in this day of prayer and action and remember especially those who are sick or anxious, and all involved in our Health Service. As one action, we are calling on everyone to place a lighted candle in their window at 7.00 p.m. as a sign of solidarity and hope in the light of Christ that can never be extinguished.”

Be assured of my prayers this week, and despite the difficult time of God’s unfailing love for you.

If you need help then please contact me.

Every blessing Rev Wendy
