“God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble.” Psalm 46:1
We have taken the decision that our church buildings should close for private prayer. This is, of course, a very difficult decision to make, but it is important that we do so for the good of our neighbours, our community, and nation.
From today (23rd March), St Mary Magdalene, Geddington and St Mary the Virgin, Weekley, will not be open to the public for private prayer. Our ministry teams will still be praying for our villages, and we will continue to use social media as best we can. Your Church is still here for you. We will continue to try and show God’s love to all, to serve all in our communities, especially the most vulnerable. If you can help with that please get in touch with Revd Gillian on 01536 742200.
The last few days have revealed that there are many ways that we can support and uphold each other in these remarkable times. Please remember that YOU are the Church - that WE are the Church. So, let us continue praying earnestly, wherever we are, and let's continue to make contact with each other as best we can.
'May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, so that you may abound in hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.’ Romans 15.13
Yours in Christ,
Rev’d Gillian Gamble
Priest in Charge
