Welcome to our virtual morning Bible Reading & Prayer for today. 

 
Good morning.

Our beautiful church remains closed for the time being, as we all play our part in fighting the invisible enemy of Covid 19.

As we continue to work from home, or on the front line with our brave key workers, I hope our daily prayers and readings from the Bible, bring you hope, some comfort and sustain you during this difficult time.

Our church remains empty, but together, in a virtual world, we give thanks to our Lord and pray for those whose lives have been touched during this time.
Blessings to you and your family.

them. Therefore be alert, remembering that for three years I did not cease night or day to warn
everyone with tears. And now I commend you to God and to the message of his grace, a message
that is able to build you up and to give you the inheritance among all who are sanctified. I coveted
no one’s silver or gold or clothing. You know for yourselves that I worked with my own hands to
support myself and my companions. In all this I have given you an example that by such work we
must support the weak, remembering the words of the Lord Jesus, for he himself said, “It is more
blessed to give than to receive.” ’
When he had finished speaking, he knelt down with them all and prayed. There was much
weeping among them all; they embraced Paul and kissed him, grieving
