We are using this page to keep in touch and continue to Worship the Lord, pray and serve our community together whilst Public services are suspended.
You can access updates for the church on this website and we are currently looking a forming a private Facebook or What’s app for Holy Trinity members to keep in touch. We are also keeping in touch with each other via text message and St Ann’s are keeping in touch via skype (Andrea has sent an e-mail link for this but if you haven’t got it please contact St Ann’s if you would like further details)
At this time it is even more important to pray. the Archbishop of Canterbury said ‘although we may not be able to pray with people in the ways that we are used to, we can certainly pray for people.’ One way to encourage your prayer life at this time is to sign up for the LECTIO 365 prayer app. This week (starting 23rd March) is especially relevant as it is focusing on prayers for the coronavirus. The C of E also has a daily prayer on it’s website and there are links to these below.
LECTIO 365 is a daily devotional resource that helps you pray the Bible every day.
Written by leaders from the 24-7 Prayer movement, and produced in partnership with CWR, this resource helps you engage with Scripture to inspire prayer and shape your life.
Journey through the year with Pete Greig, Carla Harding, Phil Togwell, Jill Weber and international guest writers. Click in the LECTIO 365 image link to find out more.
