Do keep coming!

Across the Diocese it is business as usual for our churches, with a mind to the coronavirus always in the forefront of the minds of ministers and congregations alike.

Do keep coming!

Many have taken to social media to let their communties know that services and outreach events are still going on.

This message posted on Facebook by the Beaminster Area Team in Dorset is typical of many:

"Open for business as usual tomorrow. The Beaminster Team churches are following Church of England guidelines and making sure we promote good hygiene. If you are feeling poorly perhaps it is best to stay at home and rest. If you would like a call from one of the clergy please do contact us."

While down in Poole the Revd Lucy Holt posted:

"The Holt Cafe will be open for business again this coming Saturday morning from 9-10.30am at St James Church Centre, Church St, Poole.
Hot breakfast served to order with donations to the Routes to Roots Homeless Hub washing machine.

"Come along and bring a friend or two - we will make sure that tables are spaced well apart and soap and hand gel will be at the ready!"

If you want to know more about what's happening at your church, or you are feeling unwell and would like to be prayed for, or have help collecting food and medicines while you are self isolating, contact your local priest or churchwardens.
