During the current circumstances, many of our congregations are anxious about COVID-19 and understandably self-isolating. Our sizeable pastoral team (augmented by extra volunteers) is there to support you and if you are on our electoral rolls or GDPR databases, you can expect a phone call from one of the team over the next few days. We are seeking to provide social interaction – by phone but not in person – to reduce loneliness as well as to see whether you have any needs that you are not able to meet. This might include small amounts of shopping for essential perishable foodstuffs (subject to our ability to buy them, of course!). Feel free to contact the pastoral care co-ordinators (Sue and Chris) or myself, preferably by email at firstname.lastname@example.org or discuss it with your allocated pastoral team supporter when (s)he calls you.
