St Martin’s Church Hawksburn
Sunday Services: 8am and 10:00am
27 Cromwell Road, South Yarra, VIC
(Located on the corner of
Cromwell Road and Wilson Street)
As of Monday, the 23rd of March, all public services and parish activities will be suspended at St Martin’s Hawksburn until further notice. Our parish building at 27 Cromwell Road will also be closed for the foreseeable future. These measures are being made across the Anglican Diocese of Melbourne in response to the spread of the COVID-19 coronavirus.
However, just because we cannot gather at our beloved church building does not mean we some how cease to be the Church. Albeit currently only from our own homes, our worship and prayer continue. We particularly pray for all victim of the coronavirus and for all those ‘fighting on the frontlines’ of this battle: for nurses, doctors, medical professionals, essential workers, emergency services and government officials.
Of course no matter where we find ourselves or in what situation, we continue to show the love and light of Christ to the glory of God the Father through the strengthening of the Holy Spirit.
We are doing our best, within the legal provisions, to film services of prayer and reflection and place them online. Please see our parish YouTube account: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCDDKn8FTljBLSRyaHqbLmRg
Please join us in the prayer below that has been written by the Archbishop of Dublin and Glendalough (and adapted a little for the Australian context):
Almighty and All–loving God,
Father, Son and Holy Spirit,
we pray to you through Christ the Healer
for those who suffer from the COVID–19 coronavirus
in Australia and across the world.
We pray too for all those who mourn the loss
of each and every person who has died
as a result of contracting the disease.
Give wisdom to policymakers,
skill to healthcare professionals and researchers,
comfort to everyone in distress
and a sense of calm to us all
in these days of uncertainty and distress.
This we ask in the name of Jesus Christ our Lord
who showed compassion to the outcast,
acceptance to the rejected
and love to those to whom no love was shown.
Come and see
