> all churches are now closed. 

The following information can be viewed on church websites and facebook pages:
> weekly pew sheets giving information and updates;

A prayer for all those affected by Coronavirus
Keep us, good Lord, under the shadow of your mercy.
Sustain and support the anxious, be with those who care for the sick,
and lift up all who are brought low; that we may find comfort 
knowing that nothing can separate us from your love in Christ Jesus our Lord. Amen.
