Diocesan response to COVID-19


The Anglican Diocese of Bendigo is following the National Guidelines – Anglican Church of Australia in response to COVID-19 coronavirus, which are updated regularly in line with government directions.

Sunday worship services are paused for the time being. Online diocesan worship services are available weekly.

Gracious God,
We give thanks anew for your providence and presence.
We prayerfully seek your grace, amidst COVID-19 here and overseas.
We pray for those in need of healing.
We pray for your peace with those who are anxious or grieving.
We pray you will continue to strengthen and sustain all those who are serving in response.
We pray for your Holy Spirit’s discernment amidst the many choices and decisions facing our national, community and medical leaders.
We pray we each might see quickly what more we can do to help those who are vulnerable.
This prayer for our nation in the family of nations, with all that is on our hearts, we gather now and pray through Jesus Christ our Lord.
AMEN.

+Matt
