Our role in responding, as churches, dioceses and compassionate Christians, is to:

  • Combat fear with knowledge in order to encourage preparedness and decrease stigma.
  • Maintain operational continuity and continue worship life in the case of potential quarantine and disruption. 
  • Show God’s compassion and care to those in our communities who are affected

Faith-based response to epidemics from ER-D  (Episcopal Relief and Development)
An epidemic is a large-scale outbreak of an infectious disease, such as influenza or coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19). Our role in responding, as churches, dioceses and compassionate Christians, is to:

  • Combat fear with knowledge in order to encourage preparedness and decrease stigma.
  • Maintain operational continuity and continue worship life in the case of potential quarantine and disruption.
  • Show God’s compassion and care to those in our communities who are affected.

Jesus,
you taught us to pray.

So, in a moment of silence
we pray for all known to us
who tonight need to know you are near.

We thank you,
for all engaged in the ministries of healing and reconciliation,
for those who work in hospitals and hospices,
for doctors and district nurses,
for carers and counsellors,
for peacemakers and peacekeepers.

God our maker,
Jesus our healer,
Holy Spirit of love and life,
hear our prayers.

To those who seek you,
to all who need you,
to the world you cherish
bring healing,
bring wholeness,

bring peace. (The Iona Abbey Worship Book, p. 123)
