The Bishop of London has now instructed that, as well as public worship being suspended, all churches in the Diocese of London must now be closed.

Chelsea Old Church 

will therefore, sadly, be closed until further notice.

At this time we will also be praying in the midst of this national crisis for the NHS, medical researchers and those who are unwell:

A Prayer for the National Health Service

O LORD Jesus Christ, who wentest about doing good and healing all manner of sickness: Give power, wisdom, and gentleness to all thy ministering servants, our physicians, surgeons, and nurses; that, always bearing thy presence with them, they may not only heal but bless, and shine as lamps of hope in the darkest hours of distress and fear; who livest and reignest with the Father and the Holy Ghost ever, one God world without end.

Amen.

A Prayer for medical researchers

Almighty God, Who art the Father of truth and understanding: shed forth, we beseech Thee, upon those who are engaged in medical research the light of Thy heavenly guidance; grant unto them the spirit of patient discernment, that they may be skilled to discover the way of health and healing; and strengthen them with the assurance that they are fellow-workers together with Thee; through Jesus Christ our Lord.

Amen.

A Prayer for someone who is unwell

O GOD, the strength of the weak and the comfort of sufferers: Mercifully accept our prayers, and grant to thy servant the help of thy power; that his/her sickness may be turned into health, and our sorrow into joy; through Jesus Christ our Lord.

Amen.

Easter Services we had prepared for Chelsea Old Church will now not take place.
