Our reaction to the current situation – coronavirus, COVID-19

Our response to Coronavirus (Covid 19).

During this outbreak of coronavirus (Covid 19) we shall be keeping you up to date with the way we can help one another, share information and offer prayers. This is an uncertain time for many of us but we do have a faith in Jesus who is steadfast and certain so we offer up prayers for all our concerns as well as practical details of how we are organising ourselves.

The newest information will appear here and then be kept on this page for you to access.

As we are no longer meeting together especially for worship there will be different ways for us to share. Church is about much more than gathering together in the building on a Sunday. These suggestions will appear here as we go along.

Already we have received information from both our parent denominations (Methodist and United Reformed Church) and Churches Together in Devon/ Churches Together in England. These will be posted on the following pages.

A prayer from Rev Dr John Proctor General Secretary of the United Reformed Church:

Lord Jesus,
In the midst of a storm,
You said, ‘Peace be still.’
Bid our anxious fears subside,
Sustain your church in faith, hope and love,
Bring our nation through this tumult,
Grant wisdom to those with heavy responsibilities,
And healing and hope to those who are infected. Amen.

A prayer from the Methodist Church appears on our first post for this news. Further information will be sent to people from the minister Rev Don Macalister. Where possible it will also be placed on this website
