For the next three weeks the Church of England has closed all church buildings to help prevent the spread of coronavirus. This includes closing churches for private prayer and for streaming of services. (You can read the guidance here.)
We pray that this is a short lived measure and we seek to support our wider congregation and community by other means – via our weekly notice sheet, our Church website (www.huttonrudbychurch.org.uk), and the daily service from the Rectory. (Type “You Tube Whorlton Church” into Google).
For more information please ring one of the Church Wardens – Owen 01642 701355 or Jennifer 01642 701730.
As we begin another week which will bring further challenges for the communities that we serve, and additional pressures on our clergy and other parish leaders, you may like to use the following prayer.
God of love,
passionate and strong,
tender and careful:
watch over us and hold us
all the days of our life;
through Jesus Christ our Lord.
