Poem of the week

From: The Word’s Out by Godfrey Rust



I listen for your word

And hear nothing.


And sometimes

You make so much noise

I can hear nothing else.

Worship and prayer

Archbishops’ call to pray for our nation

We are invited to join a Prayer for the nation each day at 6pm.


This is in response to reaching the terrible milestone of 100,000 deaths from COVID-19.  More than ever, this is a time when we need to love each other and prayer is an expression of love.

“Gracious God,
as we remember before you the thousands who have died,
surround us and all who mourn with your strong compassion.
Be gentle with us in our grief,
protect us from despair,
and give us grace to persevere
and face the future with hope
in Jesus Christ our risen Lord.
