Parish of Greenside
Loving God, guiding the people of Durham Diocese faithfully through the years: we thank you for saints who have marked our path, young and old, known and unknown, from all places and in all walks of life. Help us to find your way in our generation: transformed by your truth, sharing your life, blessing our communities. Through Jesus Christ our Lord, Amen.
Public worship is presently suspended in response to the COVID-19 crisis.

Our Sunday worship is now virtual and we are worshipping together from home. Join us here.
Here's a prayer you can pray daily:
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.
