The bishop of Truro has announced today that all churches in Cornwall are to now close until further notice, this includes for private prayer. Weddings and baptisms will have to be postponed and rearranged for a later date. Funerals are still permitted, although probably not in church buildings, and where they occur in the crematorium numbers should be kept to a minimum. Please seek the advice of your funeral director and/or vicar.
The benefice of lostwithiel Parishes therefore deeply regrets that the public will no longer be able to use any of our six churches. Please continue to join me in praying for our communities and our nation.
Please take time to remember those who are ill and those affected by the Corona Virus
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.
