Parish Prayer - Updated on 24 March 2020

During this emergency, I am going to offer Daily Prayer twice each day and invite all those in our parish to join me in prayer at the same time from home.

Morning Prayer will be said by me at 10am
Evening Prayer will be said by me at 7pm and the Church Bell will ring.
A variety of reflections and services will be videoed and can be found on the church Facebook page. St James with Emmanuel Church, New Brighton

Please join with your fellow Christians in praying for all who have been touched by this Virus and for our Communities, our Country and our World.

Thank you for conducting my brother’s funeral yesterday. At a very sad time your words were of great comfort to me and also to those who attended the service at Landican yesterday. Thank you, Stephen.
