OPENING OF CHURCHES FOR PRIVATE PRAYER
Our churches will be open for individual private prayer for limited hours each week, due to the restrictions we currently need to work under to reduce the risk of Covid-19 transmission.
Gastard and Neston: Sunday 29 Nov 11 am to 1 pm
Lacock: Sunday 29 Nov 10.30-12 noon
Advent Remembrance display available to visit in Corsham Churchyard following its dedication by Revd Andrew (please note that the car park is still closed except for Blue Badge holders)
Additional private prayer times may become available in Corsham and Lacock once the details of the latest lockdown are available.
Please note that only parts of each church may be accessible, and you will be requested to use hand sanitiser on entry and exit. Social distancing measures apply, and it is now a legal requirement to wear a face covering in places of worship and church halls, unless a relevant exemption applies. We regret we are also unable to provide Bibles, prayer books etc. Whilst you are welcome to meet friends in the churchyard (within current social distancing rules) please do not arrange to meet anyone outside your household bubble inside a church.
Advent conversations Bible study weekly on Wednesdays at 11am, led by Revd Andrew. Each session is complete in itself and previous participants will be invited each week, but if you wish to join in please contact Revd Andrew a for an invitation at firstname.lastname@example.org

A prayer for all those affected by coronavirus
Keep us, good Lord,
under the shadow of your mercy.
Sustain and support 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.
