In a statement issued by the Archbishops of Canterbury and York, all Church of England churches have been advised to put public worship on hold in the coming months, as we face the challenge of Coronavirus. We in the Dereham and District Team Ministry are following the Archbishops' instructions and suspending public worship for the forseeable future.
Unfortunately all our church buildings are currently closed.
Our Team Vicars will be saying the Offices of Morning and Evening prayer and Compline. Some of these services will be recorded and made available on the website.
The Eucharist will also be celebrated every Sunday morning.
Please do make use of the 'Prayer Resources' section.
As we come through this worrying time we will be anxious for ourselves, our loved ones and our world, but we remember that God is faithful, a very present help in time of trouble. Our Christian faith gives us confidence that in Jesus, 'We have this hope, a sure and steadfast anchor of the soul' (Hebrews 6: 19). And so, as we journey through this time, we encourage you to rest in the knowledge and love of God, trusting that he is with us, loves us and holds us fast.
A prayer for all those affected by the Coronavirus
Keep us, good Lord, under the shadow of your mercy.
Support and sustain the anxious; be with those who care for the sick, and lift up all who are brought low;
that we may find comfort knowing that nothing can separate us from your love in Christ Jesus our Lord. Amen.
