Worship Services suspended at Williamstown Uniting Church Electra Street

The Church Council of Electra Street Uniting Church has reluctantly decided to temporarily suspend all public worship because of COVID-19. Further, the Australian Government has directed that all places of worship be closed from midday on Monday 23rd March 2020. This means that it will not be possible to open the church building for private reflection until we are notified that it is safe to do so. This is a difficult time for everyone but it is important that we are responsible and follow any directives given by the Government in order that people remain safe, especially those who are most vulnerable in the community.

May this light continue to be a reminder of God’s love and care for us.

May this prayer be of comfort to you

Gracious God,

We give thanks anew for your providence and presence.
We prayerfully seek your grace, amidst COVID-19 here and overseas.
We pray for those in need of healing.
We pray for your peace with those who are anxious or grieving.
We pray you will continue to strengthen and sustain all those who are serving in response.
We pray for your Holy Spirit’s discernment amidst the many choices and decisions facing our national, community and medical leaders.
We pray we each might see quickly what more we can do to help those who are vulnerable.
This prayer for our nation in the family of nations, with all that is on our hearts, we gather now and pray through Jesus Christ our Lord.

AMEN
