We remember the Royal Family in their bereavement.

O God, our sovereign and shepherd, who brought again your Son, Jesus Christ, from the valley of death, comfort, we pray, The Queen and all the Royal Family with your protecting presence. Fill them with your Holy Spirit; and with your heavenly peace; and bring them at the last to your everlasting kingdom; through Jesus Christ, our Lord. Amen

For the many churches opening their doors to public, in-person worship for the first-time in many months, and for those communities and individuals who are celebrating still physically distanced from one another.

For our archdeacons, supporting parishes in these decisions: The Venerable Julie Conalty, The Venerable Andy Wooding Jones, The Venerable Dr Paul Wright.
