• Welcome to Holy Trinity Shaw. Our Church is part of the Ecumenical Partnership of West Swindon and Lydiard Tregoze. 

    We worship together at Holy Trinity Shaw every Sunday at 10.30 am. All are welcome. 

    We are an Ecumenical Church where people from different denominations (Anglican, Methodist, URC, Baptist) come together to worship God. Come just as you are. God is love, and God loves you. 

    We are following Government Guidance and masks are being used inside the building please.

    Praying for Peace in the Ukraine

    We are praying for Ukraine. We pray to our God of love and compassion to bring peace.
    Let us pray....
    God our help in ages past, we come before you in fear.
    We are bewildered and dismayed by new war.
    We hear the cries of those who are invaded, bereaved, at risk of death, facing destruction, violence, loss.
    We try to understand what motivates the invader, what ancient wrong or modern right, what deep desire for control or suppressed sense of ownership makes this aggression conceivable.
    Take from our hearts the panic that makes this tragedy all about us, and open our hearts in compassion that it may be all about those in danger and about you.
    Turn our eyes to the body of your son, crucified for our merciless antagonism, embracing our fecklessness and folly, calling us precious, honoured and loved as our failures are set as a seal on his outstretched arms.
    As you brought life from the most desperate form of death, bring hope today for Ukraine, for all who seek peace, for your wounded world. In Christ your son our Lord. Amen.

     

    We are praying for our world each day and we give thanks with everyone in our nation, for the NHS and all those who are working so hard in these difficult times.

    Prayer during the Corona Virus Outbreak

    Psalm 91:4-6

     He will cover you with his wings;
      you will be safe in his care;
      his faithfulness will protect and defend you.
     You need not fear any dangers at night
      or sudden attacks during the day

     

    Join us in prayer:

    Lord Jesus, we humbly ask you to protect us and keep us safe in this time of disease. We pray for those who are unwell at this moment that you bring healing and your peace. And we pray for comfort and strength for relatives and friends of people who are ill.

    Lord, at this time of huge change and uncertainty we take refuge under your wings, safe in your care. We pray that you replace anxiety or fear with your peace, and that you protect our hearts and minds in your steadfast love.

    We pray for comfort for anyone who has lost a loved one at this time; the comfort beyond understanding of His constant loving presence.

    Lord Jesus, protect and care for all the front line workers, the medical staff and ancillary staff, carers, emergency services, the workers selling and maintaining a supply of food, medicine and necessities, and those delivering post and maintaining our services. Give them energy and health.

    We pray for our leaders, both nationally and locally, that they make wise and courageous decisions to limit the spread of this virus and protect the communities.

    We ask all these things in the authority of your Holy name Lord Jesus Christ.

    Amen

    We are committed to praying for our Community. Please contact us here if you have a prayer request.
