The Archbishops have issued a call to prayer at 6PM each day during lock down. You can find the prayer for the day below and our Virtual Prayer Room here.
All who are grieving, and all who are suffering with physical and mental ill-health
‘Lord the one you love is ill … (John 11:3)
We bring to God all those who suffer in body, mind, spirit or with grief.
We ask that in God’s great loving kindness they might know God’s sustaining presence amidst their pain.
We pray for those who are stretched beyond their own capacity to cope and remain hopeful – that in the roar of these waterfalls God would bring a sense of coherence, comfort and strength.
Lord Jesus Christ,
in these dark and difficult days, we turn our hearts to you.
In ages past, you have delivered our nation from disaster.
Do it again, we pray.
Give wisdom beyond human wisdom to our leaders,
Give strength beyond human strength to the NHS and all our frontline workers.
Give comfort beyond human comfort to the elderly and all who grieve.
Lord Jesus Christ,
in these dark and difficult days,
turn your face towards us,
have mercy upon us,
and heal our land, we pray.
Welcome from Simon
Welcome to the webpages for Christ Church and St Georges, two sister churches in the Great Chesham Parish. For the past 150 years we have been offering Christian worship, community and support for the districts of Waterside and Tylers Hill. Our buildings are currently closed because of the covid-19 restrictions, but our life together is thriving online. We invite you to join us for online Sunday worship services, shared with St John’s Ashley Green – the links are given above. We are also running learning groups, prayer gatherings and social ‘get togethers’ via the Zoom platform, and details are available in our weekly news.
Our parish is following carefully the advice of the Diocese of Oxford based on the Church of England’s guidelines, and when we are confident it is safe to re-open our buildings for some form of private prayer or worship, we will post details on this page.
If you are self-isolating because you are in one of the vulnerable categories or you have been quarantined because of the illness and need some practical assistance, we can help: please contact me. Likewise, if you are in need of a listening ear or spiritual support, via a phone or video call, we are happy to help – don’t hesitate to be in touch.
May God’s grace, peace and courage be with us all at this time
The Revd Simon Winn, Interim Team Vicar
Pilgrims and visitors traditionally light candles in churches and cathedrals for those that they want prayer for.
