Grace and Peace to you as you receive the worship resources prepared for you for the coming Holy Week. May you know God with you whether you are alone at home, with family or continuing to work hard to support our communities in these unfamiliar days.

We write in the week in which the 'NHS Nightingale Hospital' opened to meet the demands of the current pandemic. Back on 8th March (International Women's Day) The Vine worship resources reminded us of Florence Nightingale's deep felt call from God to serve others. A call which many in our region hear today as they seek to respond to the current emergency situation. For some serving others means staying in isolation, for others (like Florence Nightingale) service is on the front line, some risk their own safety and even their own life by following their call. The road to the cross feels very real in this particular Lenten season.

There are many resources being produced to support us all in this new situation.

1. The Connexional Methodist Church website includes prayers and practical information in response to the Covid-19 situation. There is a section focused on worship.

2. "Pray-as-you-Stay" week 2 is now available https://pray-as-you-go.org/article/pray-as-you-stay-week-2

3. Like other public gatherings Spring Harvest events this Easter have been cancelled. However you can share in some of the worship, teaching and seminars online from 13th to 17th April. Find out more on Spring Harvest at Home

4. The Bible Project is offering weekly Church at Home resources including video, audio, scripture and discussion resources.

Whatever the week ahead holds, may you have times of peace and joy with much to be thankful for as we remember together the journey our Saviour took from Bethphage to the cross.
