From Tony Berry - Monday 23 March
We live in changeable times. Things that seemed normal now are not, things we assumed - we cannot rely on, things we did routinely have been cancelled.
As we look to the future, our main concern is for people who are vulnerable, in need of support, or suffering. There are local initiatives that have been started which will attempt to meet those needs. If you can support those then please do. If you are in need of support, then do please ask for help. If you don’t know who to ask, then please do get in touch with the Parish Office and we can point you in the right direction.
Sadly, Tony's next two paragraphs have been overtaken by the decision of the Archbishops of Canterbury and York that all Church of England Churches must be closed, until they decide they can be open once more - the Webmaster.
Our churches remain open for private prayer although regular services have been cancelled. Please feel free to pop in for a moment of quiet reflection if you wish.
On Sundays I will be going to St. James and Christ Church to say Morning or Evening Prayer. Listen out for the bells ringing to let you know that prayers are being said for the world, the nation and our communities.
We will try to keep people updated through the church websites and we will be putting Bible verses, thoughts and prayers on there which we hope might bring hope, encouragement and support during this difficult time.
Do get in touch - 01306 737746 - if you are anxious, have some questions, or need support.
I wish you God’s peace and hold you in my prayers.
Help and Support
As we will not be having any services in Christ Church during the Coronavirus pandemic, we will do our best to support the community by providing words and prayers for everyone to consider and share. These are on the From the Leith Hill Ministry Team page.
We are also providing information on who to contact if you need help of any form of help. This is on our Support page.
