    A message from Steve, our vicar

    Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ,

    As we start to move away from a blanket lockdown, the world in we inhabit will once again start to feel different, I hope in a good way. Of course, there are still many areas of the world that are suffering either from the first way of Covid-19 or sadly a second wave. We pray that this will not be the case here in Bromley, so please let me encourage you to keep to the measures in place to keep us all as safe as possible. Please do continue to pray for all our NHS staff, for those who continue to suffer from this virus, and those who may be suffering because of it, the lonely, the bereaved, and the vulnerable in society. So, may our thoughts and our prayers reflect and imitate Gods love and compassion.    

    God of compassion,
    be close to those who are ill, afraid or in isolation.
    In their loneliness, be their consolation;
    in their anxiety, be their hope;
    in their darkness, be their light;
    through him who suffered alone on the cross,
    but reigns with you in glory,
    Jesus Christ our Lord.
    Amen.


     The Church open for private prayer in lockdown

    Environment - Wild Christians
    Anyone who has stopped to admire the spring blossom or enjoy the sights and sounds of summer, will understand how important nature has been during lockdown for our happiness and health.  If you're looking for ways to explore the connections between our Christian faith, the natural environment, and how we live, the Wild Christian, free monthly email from Christian Conservation charity, A Rocha UK, could be a start. Offering  a biblical reflection and ideas on how to enjoy, nurture and defend nature. Sign up at: https://arocha.org.uk/wildchristian/
