Church Open for Public Worship
St Alban's Church is currently open for socially distanced public worship at 10:00 A.M. every Sudnay, under risk-assessed socially distanced conditions.
We have room for a congregation of 44 people from up to 22 households in the church, with separate arrangements for the choir and servers.
Currently there is no need for our regular members and frequent visitors to book, but if you are a stranger to St Alban's Church or have not visited recently, you may like to read the about the precautions we have in place in the church and the precautions that we are encouraging everyone to follow in the church here: http://www.saintalban.co.uk/covid/.
If you plan to bring a large party to the service, please e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org or phone Fr Gerry on 0121 440 0404 to ensure that we can accommodate you.
Some of our regular congregation remain unable or unwilling to attend in person, so Fr Gerry will continue to stream our Sunday service over Zoom for members of the congregation whenever possible (for an invitation link please contact Fr Gerry).
You can find videos of our Sunday services here: Service Videos.
Act of Spiritual Communion
If circumstances make the bodily reception of Communion impossible, one may wish to make use of a prayer of Spiritual Communion such as the following prayer of St Alphonsus Liguori:
My Jesus, I believe that you are present in the Most Blessed Sacrament.
I love you above all things,
and I desire to receive you into my soul.
Since I cannot now receive you sacramentally,
come at least spiritually into my heart.
I embrace you as if you were already there,
and I unite myself wholly to you.
Never permit me to be separated from you.
Fr Gerry has also made some videos of interfaith meditaions for Ark St Alban's Academy. You can find these meditations here: Interfaith Videos.
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.
