prayer of the week

Almighty God,
who sent your Holy Spirit
to be the life and light of your Church:
open our hearts to the riches of your grace,
that we may bring forth the fruit of the Spirit
in love and joy and peace;
through Jesus Christ your Son our Lord,
who is alive and reigns with you,
in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
one God, now and for ever.

SafePass Requirements

The usual requirements to use hand gel entering and leaving the church, wearing a face mask covering nose and mouth, and observing physical distancing, continue to apply. Additionally, in order to come to church each person will need to have with them a SafePass. Each person must carry proof of one of:

 A negative PCR or rapid test, taken within the last 72 hours
 Vaccination of at least one dose received at least 3 weeks ago
 Having contracted coronavirus in the past 6 months.

The responsibility for this lies with each person. If the church is subject to a surprise police check, anyone without the one of the three proofs listed above will be responsible for any fine imposed.

A Listening Ear

If you are a Cyprus resident and would like an opportunity to share where you are; how you are in this season, a trained Spiritual Director is available to listen confidentially.  Information here.
