Dear Parishioner,

In light of the current situation with Covid-19/coronavirus, we thought it would be useful to update everyone with how this

will be affecting the life of three churches in the weeks ahead.

Please do take a few minutes to read through this. If you have any concerns or just want to talk with one of the clergy,

please do see the final section at the bottom of this notice.

ARE CHURCH BUILDINGS OPEN FOR WORSHIP AND PRAYER?

As of 24th March 2020, the latest guidance for churches from the government is “stay home, protect the NHS, and save

lives”. This means that all church buildings have had to close their doors for the time being.

Public worship is suspended until further notice but do look out  worship resources on our Facebook page: Illogan Parish.

CAN WE STILL WORSHIP TOGETHER?

We have produced a simple order of service that we can each  at home to worship and pray. These are available through our Facebook page.

WHAT WILL THE CLERGY BE DOING? WHERE CAN I GET  SUPPORT? HOW CAN I HELP?

Like everyone else, the clergy will be abiding by the current government advice to stay home. Services,  Weddings, and  Christenings have had to be cancelled.

We will be regularly contacting by telephone and/or e-mail everyone  who is part of our three church families whose contact details we have.

We would like to assure everyone in the Parish of St Illogan of our prayers and support at this time, and encourage anyone who feels

concerned or worried or who needs practical help to contact myself, Alex or Marlene using the regular numbers:

• Revd Steve: 01209 843938

• Revd Marlene: 01209 713175

• Revd Alex: 01209 844662

There are lots of ways we can all help each other at this time:

• Please do be praying for the situation, for those you know and love, for our church families and for all those working to mitigate, halt and stop the virus.

• Please do take the government’s advice seriously.

• Please be in touch with each other via telephone, WhatsApp, e-mail and text messages. Let’s reassure, encourage and  point each other to Jesus and the hope we always have in him

at this time. If you feel someone needs to be contacted by the clergy please let us know.

Keep us, good Lord, under the shadow of your mercy in this time of uncertainty and distress. Sustain and support the anxious and fearful,

and lift up all who are brought low; that we may rejoice in your comfort knowing that nothing can separate us from your love

in Christ Jesus our Lord.

Amen.

with love and prayers,

Rev Steve
