Need some 'Time with God'? Our LLM Cathy has prepared a lovely 'at home' service for Spring and you can download it here. Cathy has also prepared a new Time with God service which focuses on reflection on isolation. You can download it from here. There is also a special Time with God for Sunday 21st June for Father's Day and you can view information about this on our Events page and download the resource here.
If you would like to practice 'Daily Prayer', you can follow the Church of England's services on their website here: https://www.churchofengland.org/prayer-and-worship/join-us-service-daily-prayer
The Church of England have also prepared some documents for you to download and use as you wish at home.

Keep us, good Lord,
under the shadow of your mercy
in this time of uncertainty and distress.
Sustain and support the anxious and fearful,
and lift up all who are brought low;
that we may rejoice in your comfort
knowing that nothing can separate us from your love
in Christ Jesus our Lord.
