Light a candle this evening

The ecumenical network 'Churches Together in England' has issued a national call to prayer in light of the coronavirus pandemic.

They ask to us to light a candle in the windows of our homes at 7pm this evening (Sunday, 22nd March) "as a visible symbol of the light of life, Jesus Christ, our source and hope in prayer." Let's join this call this evening to unite in prayer.

The Churches Together statement also says: "Alongside your prayers, take the opportunity to telephone or email someone who is isolated, buy some additional food for your local foodbank, or offer to deliver shopping for an elderly neighbour. We may not be able to touch physically, but we can make connections in so many other ways."
