St Mary’s at Home

See below for links to creative worship, our latest Sunday worship online, prayer, discipleship, and other resources which will grow here as ‘St Mary’s at Home’ online. Join for St Mary’s Sunday Worship online every week, as always, on St Mary’s Youtube Channel. And every weekday, please join us for Morning Prayer live on St Mary’s Facebook page at 9am (or later recorded). Night Prayer Compline Tuesdays & Thursdays 9pm. Please ‘follow’ St Mary’s Shalford on Facebook too! May we grow in our relationship with God, grow in fellowship, faith, hope and love, in the loving care of others, and to the glory of God, during this time of staying at home.

Today’s Prayer:

God so intimate and yet so distant,
So close and yet beyond our grasp
In Christ you showed us your whole self
Merciful, humble, suffering, transforming,
In the midst of this global crisis, 
Show us your whole self
That we like Christ might be swept up in your ascended glory
In the ascended Christ and the power of the coming Spirit Amen
