Blessing for a Living-Room

by Nancy Byrd Turner (in public domain)


Let this room live, in truth,
With sunlight on the floor
And firelight on the wall,
And wind around the door,
And the clock’s call.

Here shall true love abide
Through every sort of weather,
Making its own wise cheer;
Hearts happy together
The length of the year.

Here shall be honest mirth,
Face catching light from face,
The sound of happy laughter
From chuckling chimney-place
To ruddy rafter.

Here shall be life indeed,
Whatever fortune falls,--
Here, at the core of home,
Within these four plain walls
A Living room.

Current guidance for attending church:

  • We are now exempt from wearing masks in Church

  • However if you wish to wear a mask for some, or all of the service, you are welcome to do so. 

  • The area at the back is for those who feel safe, and more comfortable, if they can maintain social distance.

  • The pews are for people who do not feel the need to socially distance. 

  • Our Wednesday services will remain socially distanced.

  • The church is now open during daylight hours. It will not open on Sunday before the service to enable the Rector to give everything a quick wipe down!
