The Rector writes …

Dear friends,

I hope you and your families are all well and staying safe. Thinking of you, and keeping you all in my prayers. 

I hope in these strange times you have managed to feel that you’re still connected to St Molua’s by worshiping together (although apart) via our website and Facebook pages, and by phone. The Sunday services are still available on the website if you’d like to catch up.

As you will see, we have decided to publish a special edition of CONTACT magazine, but like so many publications, due to current restrictions, it is an online edition, available on our website. Please check out the link below, and feel free to share with your friends!

A limited number of copies have been printed for those with no access to the internet.

I hope you enjoy reading the articles and resources, and you can catch up on any previous editions you may have missed in the past year or so. You can also keep up to date via our Facebook page.

If there’s any news you would like us to share please let me know.

The Diocesan website is worth looking at for news around the Diocese.

The Church of Ireland website will keep you up to date with news, daily and weekday readings

Also available – Lectionary booklet of all daily readings to download in PDF:

As Christians we continue to remember those around us, and as time goes on, it is more important than ever that those of us who are healthy ring up or check on those who are vulnerable. There may be people who are associated with St Molua’s that I’m not even aware of and, unfortunately, I do not have everyone’s telephone number. Please contact me at the rectory if there is anything you need, or if you feel like a chat, or if you become aware of a situation where I can help practically or prayerfully. Thank you.

Most of all, please continue to pray. There are many resources for prayer in CONTACT if you find it difficult at this time to find the words…

Lord, in this time of uncertainty and distress, sustain and support all those who are anxious or fearful. Grant us all a sense of calm in these days.

Your Word reminds us: 

God is our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in trouble. Therefore we will not fear. Psalm 46:1-2

Stay safe and well. Wishing you and your families every blessing.

Yours in Christ,
