Chapel Spiritual Support
In this time of anxiety, some of you may be looking for spiritual support. Keep checking the Chapel section of the website. The Chapel Facebook page will have more stuff, including (I hope) clips of music for those of you who are missing the choir, and Sunday reflections from me. I have attached a prayer leaflet, so you can do ‘One Sentence Every Day’ through the months ahead. I will also be building a prayer page over the coming weeks, so do have a look from time to time.
I am not allowed to ask you to join me in person, but you can join me in spirit - and on YouTube. Follow the links below to view the latest services:
Sunday 5 April
Eucharist for Palm Sunday
Wednesday 25 March
Eucharist for the Annunciation
Edmund Gonville chose the feast of the Annunciation for our Dedication during the time – appropriately - of the Black Death.
Here are two prayers which hit the spot in difficult times:
Daily Prayer for the Evening
LIGHTEN our darkness, we beseech thee, O Lord;
and by thy great mercy defend us from all perils and dangers of this night;
for the love of thy only Son, our Saviour, Jesus Christ. Amen.
Daily Prayer for the Morning
O LORD, our heavenly Father, Almighty and everlasting God,
who hast safely brought us to the beginning of this day;
Defend us in the same with thy mighty power;
and grant that this day we fall into no sin,
neither run into any kind of danger;
but that all our doings may be ordered by thy governance,
to do always that is righteous in thy sight;
through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, and the love of God, and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit,
be with us all, evermore, Amen.
