Sunday Worship

 

Christ Church will be open for in person worship on Sunday mornings at 10.30am and we look forward to welcoming you.

We ask you to:

We will be keeping the 3 pews on the left side of the church (the side of the streaming desk) for social distancing and mask wearing. We are mindful that there are members of the church whose health (or family members) are vulnerable.
For the rest of the church areas we ask you to be mindful of one another, to respect one another’s space. But we will not require mask wearing unless you would prefer to have a mask on which is up to you.
We would appreciate you santising at the entrance but we will no longer require registration on entry.

To watch our past service click on the button below to find out how.

Tea and coffee will be served at the hatch once again. However, if you would prefer not to move around please stay seated after the service and we will serve you in your seats.
We hope you appreciate we are trying our best to keep people safe but also walking the delicate line of allowing for personal freedoms.

Pray for Ukraine,

God of all peoples and nations,

Who created all things alive and breathing,

United and whole,

Show us the way of peace that is Your overwhelming presence.

We hold before you the peoples of Ukraine and Russia,

Every child and every adult.

We long for the time

When weapons of war are beaten into ploughshares

When nations no longer lift up sword against nation.

We cry out to you for peace;

Protect those who only desire and deserve to live in security and safety

Comfort those who fear for their lives and the lives of their loved ones

Be with those who are bereaved.

Change the hearts of those set on violence and aggression

And fill leaders with the wisdom that leads to peace.

Kindle again in us a love of our neighbour,

And a passion for justice to prevail and a renewed recognition that we all play a part in peace.

Creator of all hear our prayer

And bring us peace. Make us whole.

Amen
