... to the website of the church of Saint Alban the Martyr — the Church of England parish church for all the people of Highgate, Birmingham.
In normal times you are very welcome to join us for prayer any Sunday, or at one of our weekday services, whatever your background and whether you live within the parish or not.
However, following the advice of of the Archbishops of Canterbury and York all public worship is cancelled until further notice to delay the spread of the COVID-19 virus and the church is now closed to all visitors.
We have had to close St Alban's for worship and we must all stay at home for now, but that doesn't mean we can't worship together. Fr Gerry has made some videos of short services in church and placed them on Facebook or YouTube. Now that we have been instructed to close the church building completely in future he will make his videos in the vicarage. You can find the videos here: Service Videos and below are interfaith meditations on courage and love that Fr Gerry prepared for ARK St Alban's Academy:
A Prayer for the COVID-19 Pandemic, from the Church of England:
Keep us, good Lord,
under the shadow of your mercy
in this time of uncertainty and distress.
Sustain and support the anxious and fearful,
and lift up all who are brought low;
that we may rejoice in your comfort
knowing that nothing can separate us from your love
in Christ Jesus our Lord.
Further prayers here: For the Viral Pandemic from the Church of England.
