Some help with your prayers at home

As we pray on Sunday, particularly remember those who are sick or anxious and all involved in health and emergency services. Pray that people will find God through this crisis and will turn back to him. Pray protection over the parish of St Luke’s and the many church members who live outside the parish, claiming the promises of God for those who acknowledge him. (Ps 91). Pray in faith for the virus to halt. It is unlikely that you will choose to pray all day!! but you could pray 3 times during the day for short periods of time, (before or after meals) or you could allocate a longer period of time during the day, setting aside the time as though it were an appointment or church service. Make it a household time of prayer - praying in families or with those you live with. If you live on your own you could arrange to pray with a friend by phone, or with 2 or 3 people by Skype. If you prefer to pray on your own do that! Read more


What is St Luke's doing about the recent CoronaVirus outbreak in Haslemere?

1. We are not panicking! 2. We are asking people with coughs & cold symptoms not to attend Church, stay at home and get better. 3. Tissues are available at church. 4. Hand wash gel is available at church. 5. We receive communion by 'intinction' = dipping of wafer into wine. Please be careful not to dip fingers. The server may do the dipping and offer the dipped wafer to be consumed directly. 6. We are NOT shaking hands at the peace. (Omit the peace) 7. We ask all to REFRAIN from hugging etc. To minimise the inadvertent transmission of infections, helping us to minimise the spread of other viruses such as winter ‘flu. Notes: How can you protect yourself? • The most important precaution we can take is to be meticulous about hand washing and that includes children. That means washing your hands regularly and thoroughly with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. • If you cough, always cover your mouth then wash your hands, and if you have to sneeze do so into the crook of your elbow. Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth if at all possible (to prevent viral transmission from the hands to the face) and disinfect any surfaces you regularly touch. If you are feeling vulnerable, please contact the office, 606703, we will try to contact you as soo… Read more
