Pre-recorded Morning Prayer
(via our Facebook page)
Compline - Night Prayer
4pm via Zoom
A Message from Reverend Clare
During this time of national lockdown we are gathering online for worship, following the advice of our government and church leaders to care for one another by staying at home as much as possible, and avoiding contact with those outside our household bubbles.
For the time being (during lockdown) we will gather online for worship.
On Sunday mornings we will post a pre-recorded service of Morning Prayer via our St Paul's Church - Marylebone Facebook page, as well as in links to our WhatsApp groups and via text. You are invited to join in this time of prayer in your own homes as we bring our needs and the needs of our world before God.
On Sunday evenings we gather at 4pm for a service of Compline - Night Prayer. This is an ancient and beautiful form of prayer which offers a great deal of comfort and hope in times of darkness and uncertainty. We gather for Compline on Zoom and you are invited to join us (please email the church office if you would like to receive the link for the Zoom gathering)
You can find updates about worship and prayer support via Facebook or Twitter. To sustain your spiritual life at home you may wish to use these prayers and reflections on the Church of England Daily Prayer page.
We continue to pray for all in our parish and city, especially those suffering with Covid-19 in hospital or at home, for the NHS and hospital chaplains responding to the crisis, for our schools and colleges as they respond to new restrictions, and for our nation and government at this challenging time.
May we seek the light of Christ and recognise Christ's presence among us as the gift of love given for our health and salvation.
On Wednesdays we continue the work of FoodCycle Marylebone delivering food to individuals and families in our community. If you would like to volunteer with FoodCycle Marylebone please sign up on the FoodCycle website.
We continue our WhatsApp prayer group and support networks, our phone-line support for prayer and practical support as part of our ongoing commitment to support one another in our life as a community. We continue to pray for all in our parish and especially for those who are suffering at this time.
If you would like to join the 'Thought for the Day' WhatsApp group please contact a member of the clergy team. The vicar or churchwardens can be contacted via phone: 02077248517 or email: firstname.lastname@example.org
Please pray for us as we pray for you
'Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength ... Love your neighbour as yourself. There is no commandment greater than these.'
