A Prayer for this time of Covid 19 Remembrance

God of love,thank you for the gift of health and life. As we think about all that has changed this year,help us to trust that you are always with us. Be close to us as we remember those who have died,and help us to trust that they are at peace with you. As we reach out to others with kindness and care,may hope shine out in every heart and home. Amen.


With Covid restrictions gradually being eased, we are delighted to announce that we are re-starting Sunday morning services with a congregation from Palm Sunday, March 28th. Social distancing and the use of masks will still be in place. Also from Palm Sunday we shall re-start live-streaming of our services again (although we are having a “practice run” with the service on March 21st.) We continue to pray for those working in our hospitals and care homes, those who are suffering from Covid 19 and those who have lost loved ones to the virus.

We are continuing to produce an audio service which is recorded each week and published here as an audio file that you can listen to. You can also access the current audio service and recent audio services on our “Audio Service” page link above. We are also able to supply the service on a CD (locally) for those who don’t have Internet access.

As churches we are always holding our village in prayer before God. If you have a particular prayer request – something that you’d like us to pray for – then you can email us at the address below. All requests are treated confidentially. See also more information about our “Prayer Together” group on the “About our Church” page.

Let’s pray for Arnside

We know that you love us and love the world. We thank you for the many blessings that you shower upon us every day. We place all our cares and concerns before you. We especially pray for this village of Arnside: for everyone who lives and works here, and for the many visitors to this beautiful place. Be close to those who are sick, bereaved, lonely or afraid. Enable everyone to know your peace, your comfort and your love. We make our prayer in the name of Jesus who is our risen Lord. Amen.
