SANCTUM: Our church building is open for private prayer throughout the week. Please feel welcome to call in. Our usual hours are between 10.00am and dusk Monday to Saturday. (We will be closed on Thursday mornings for a mid-week clean). We hope and pray that it will be a "Sanctum" - a place of peace, prayer and refuge for you and all the community. We have taken lots of steps to make it safe for everyone so please observe the Covid-19 measures we have put in place (notices are on the doors and inside the building). Thank you.
During this difficult time when our church building has been closed for much of the year and our fundraising events cancelled, we are still a church; worshipping online, loving our neighbours and praying and caring for our community. We really need your help so please support St Guthlac's Church today by visiting our online giving page here at givealittle.co
A prayer for these times:
Keep us, good Lord,
under the shadow of your mercy
in this time of uncertainty and distress.
Sustain and support the anxious and fearful,
and lift up all who are brought low;
that we may rejoice in your comfort
knowing that nothing can separate us from your love
in Christ Jesus our Lord. Amen.
