Public worship suspended until further notice

By order of Her Majesty’s Government, all places of worship are closed for public worship, private prayer and all gatherings until further notice.

You can join in worship with us online through our videos posted on this website.

For all enquiries and spiritual support please phone Reverend Damian Platt on 01253 272372.

Our priority right now is to pray for the world, our nation and our community, remembering in prayer especially those working on the front line to serve our communities, those providing treatment to people in need and those helping to tackle the spread of the virus.

Please join me in prayer:

“God of heaven and earth, we humble ourselves before your mighty power and rule. Intervene we pray, to stop the spread of the Coronavirus across your creation. Grant your peace to those who are anxious, grant healing to those who suffer, grant strength to those who work tirelessly in the cause of treatment and prevention. Forgive us for the times when we live our lives as if we don’t need you. NOW we need you. Please draw near to us. Thank you Lord Jesus Christ that when the world thought it didn’t need you 2,000 years ago, you came to the world. Once again, we ask you to draw near us, through the Holy Spirit you have left with us. Comforter, come we pray, and comfort us. In the precious name of Jesus Christ our Lord and Saviour, Amen.”

Yours in His service,

Damian Platt
Vicar, Christ Church Thornton
