Are we open? :
We remain closed as a church building yet open as the people of God.
If you are reading this notice, you may like to know that you are being prayed for right now.
Our Church, which we consider is wider and bigger than the building itself, is full of faithful people who are praying right now for all sorts of people and circumstances, including you!
We might not know your name, or you circumstance, yet our faith shows us that God knows us all
and knows us well.
We simply pray that God might meet us wherever we are, whatever our needs may be.
We believe that God works best through His people.
Then, thank you for whatever way you are helping in this pandemic. Weather that be by donating time, by giving to a foodbank, by donating money, by working or serving in whatever way, and by staying at home and keeping yourself and others safe.
We will get through this. God already knows when. We simply need to trust that.
Peace be with you all at this time.

And finally, a special prayer written by a member of St. Saviour’s Church congregation. .
God doth not need either man’s work or his own gifts; who best bear his mild yoke, they serve him best. They also serve who only stand and wait.
Heavenly Father who has given us so much, we try so hard but we don’t quite hit the target. Often we are unsure and confused what it is, we are indeed, trying to do. Too often we fill ourselves up with what we want but neglect that which we truly need.
Gracious God as we fall again, please never tire of picking us up.
Lead us to Your best service, where and when we are needed the most, to do Your bidding. The task may seem imperceptible but nothing is hidden from Your sight. May each task we commit to be another step toward the building of Your kingdom here on this earth. May each prayer we make a witness to the light of Your presence within for none are ‘safe until we are all safe’, within Your holy kingdom.
Wishing you all well and holding you all in my prayers.
With peace and all blessings
