    New message from Revd John Vilaseca, Vicar of St Paul's

    23rd March 2020

    My dear brothers and sisters,

    Tonight, the Government has issued new regulations to combat the spread of COVID-19.

    From tonight until further notice, places of worship are to close. All gatherings of more than two people in public - excluding people you live with - are banned. 

    All social events, including weddings and baptisms are banned, funerals can take place only with close family present. 

    In light of this announcement, and with great sadness, I have to announce that St Paul's Church will remain closed to the public until further notice.  

    However, our pastoral work and our prayer ministry remain active and working. 

    We can all still be connected with one another through phone calls, e-mails, through our website and our YouTube channel. Please, keep checking our website and YouTube channel for more information and prayer resources. 

    Hope, love and prayer are the three elements that will bring us comfort, peace and strength in these difficult times. Remember what Jesus said: 

    " Peace I leave with you; my peace I give to you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled, and do not let them be afraid." (John 14.27) 

    Take good care and please keep in touch. 

    God bless you and keep you, 

    his light shine upon you and be gracious unto you 

    and all those whom you love all the days of your life. Amen.  

    Yours, 

    Fr John 

    The Revd John Vilaseca, Vicar
    St Paul's Parish Church, Whitley Bay

    The Archbishops have asked to face the challenge by becoming a radically different kind of church rooted in prayer and serving others.

    Please find attached a booklet that will help you praying from home during this time.

    We will remain in touch with all of you via phone calls, e-mail and our social media. Please, keep in touch with me. You can ring me anytime. I am here to serve you all!

    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.

    Amen.
