FOLLOWING JESUS AT THE HEART OF WALLINGTON...
We're glad you're here. We're a vibrant church with people of all ages and all backgrounds and a varied programme of events, groups and services. Take a look around and see what interests you.
Our public worship services are again suspended for the time being, to help protect the health service and the most vulnerable.
Through our website, and printed
materials for those without access to the web, we'll be providing devotional
resources for you to engage with as we focus on what we can do, rather than
what we can't do.
So, our Sundays are again looking a bit different for now. Of course, church doesn't stop just because we can't meet and there are other ways of joining in worship.
We invite you to watch the short service we
will be publishing for each Sunday -
The following devotional resources are also available for you to use at home.
Here are some useful downloadable ecumenical prayer resources…
We are an active church, serving each other and the wider community.
Our regular events include Coffee with Cake and Tabletop Market every second Saturday of the month and Tunes and Tea last Friday of the month.
These activities will remain suspended for the time being.
PRAYER FOR TODAY
A special prayer during the Coronavirus COVID-19 epidemic:
Loving God in these days of Coronavirus we begin our prayer conscious of those who mourn the loss of loved ones and whose lives have been forever changed. Lord of life, bring your hope.
We pray for all frontline and key workers, and those in education and social care, and we ask your peace and provision that they may know your strength to sustain.
We pray for those who feel especially disrupted: those whose life events and celebrations have been cancelled or postponed and those whose future hopes and dreams feel distant and uncertain.
We pray for world leaders internationally and closer to home, for wisdom, insight and clarity and for a vision of community that goes beyond our national borders
As those entrusted with the care of your creation, we pray for a right judgement in the stewardship of the earth as lockdown begins to be eased, and for our future commitment to the wellbeing of the environment
We pray for your church throughout the world as we gather in our different ways. Keep us firm in the hope you have set before us so that we and all your children may be free to worship you all our days
