Remember, outdoors only this weekend, and social distancing.

Social distancing is crucial to reducing transmission of coronavirus,
Steve Brown is reminding people ahead of the Easter weekend.
“With the easing of the restrictions and a nice long Easter weekend to look forward to, it’s natural that people are going to meet up with friends and family, maybe many of whom you haven’t seen for a long time,” said the Director of Public Health Devon.
“But please remember, while you can meet up – two households or a maximum of six people – it’s outdoors only, not indoors.

This prayer has been written to mark the anniversary:

Gracious God, 

as we remember before you 

the thousands who have died, 

surround us and all who mourn 

with your strong compassion. 

Be gentle with us in our grief, 

protect us from despair, 

and give us grace to persevere 

and face the future with hope 

in Jesus Christ our risen Lord. 


Yours in Christ,

Mother Elizabeth
