Welcome to the North Tasmania Lutheran Parish, comprising congregations at Burnie, Devonport and Launceston. Although we are three congregations – we are one in the body of Christ.
All worship services to cease
Government directives are clear on the matter of gathering in public places. We must therefore close our physical church buildings and worship centres. This means no Sunday morning, Lenten, or other church services, small group Bible studies or prayer times in our buildings or in the church grounds.
Some services are able to be livestreamed. See Service Times page for further information.
A PRAYER FOR OUR LEADERS
Please grant world leaders the wisdom, discernment, strength and boldness they need to effectively combat the current COVID-19 crisis. Keep them healthy, safe and rested so that they can make wise decisions guide us through this difficult time.
Grant our pastors and church leaders your discernment on how to best meet people’s needs as they glorify your name. Encourage the Church and protect it from becoming disheartened, afraid or anxious. Bless the livestream worship services.
Bless the medical researchers and give them insight in their quest to find a vaccine. Strengthen their resolve and support them as they work to source treatment for COVID-19.
Be with the medical teams working in hospitals and centres across the globe, that they will be refreshed, protected from infection and remain positive as they treat all patients.
Bless and support this country’s leaders with your grace, inspiration, courage, joy and strength, that would enable measures which will adequately meet the needs of the current health and economic crisis in Australia.
We ask that you enable good to come from the current health crisis, in that many will turn to you who may not have otherwise. We ask for a great revival of your people returning to you through this time.
In Jesus’ name, Amen.
