Support during Lockdown/ Restrictions

Please see below a range of material to help you in this time of restrictions .  There is a mixture of prayers and worship that you can say at home, along with news to help you know what is happening in our churches and the Church of England as a whole.  Online services for the Minster and Whitelackington are happening on Facebook  – search The Minster on Facebook or click here.

If you are feeling lonely or finding it hard to ask someone to help you get food or other essential supplies then please email us at office@ilminsterpc.org.uk.  We have a small group of volunteers who might be able to help.

Prayer – Blessed are you who bear the light

Blessed are you
who bear the light
in unbearable times,
who testify
to its endurance
amid the unendurable,
who bear witness
to its persistence
when everything seems
in shadow
and grief.

Blessed are you
in whom
the light lives,
in whom
the brightness blazes—
your heart
a chapel,
an altar where
in the deepest night
can be seen
the fire that
shines forth in you
in unaccountable faith,
in stubborn hope,
in love that illumines
every broken thing
it finds.
