Welcome

‘Friend and stranger, young and old, all are welcome here.
As followers of Jesus, our journey of faith is one of love, compassion and justice for all.’

 

Lord Jesus Christ,
you taught us to love our neighbour,
and to care for those in need
as if we were caring for you.
In this time of anxiety, give us strength
to comfort the fearful, to tend the sick,
and to assure the isolated
of our love, and your love,
for your name’s sake.
Amen.
