In line with advice from both the Government and the Church of England, we are suspending services at our three churches and all meetings (Lent Courses, Bible Studies, etc)

This does not mean we are closed for business. We are investigating ways to support you without risk of spreading infection. Some of these ways are highlighted below.

 
shopping

"Doorstep Dropoff"

We have a limited number of volunteers available who would be able to collect shopping and drop it off. Please note that due to the limited number of volunteers we can only do one shop once a week (with the exception of urgent medicines). Also people should be prepared to accept a reasonable substitute if the item or brand they want is not available. If you require this service, please can you in the first instance contact Sarah at [email protected].

"The Archbishop of Canterbury's first national virtual Church of England service for Mothering Sunday"

The Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby has led a national broadcast, as the Church of England responds to the challenge of becoming a “different sort of church” in the face of the coronavirus crisis. It is available as a YouTube video here.

"Meals for the elderly and vulnerable"

A very generous offer by the Headmaster of Washingborough Academy to provide meals for the elderly and vulnerable. Click here for further details.

Many thanks for Keith Swann for coordinating this effort.

whatsapp

"WhatsApp"

If you are technologically minded then you can stay in touch via our WhatsApp group. With my GDPR hat on, I must advise people that being on the WhatsApp group will expose your mobile number to everyone else on the group. To join the group, contact Sarah at [email protected]. You will need to leave her your mobile number. Also (as I discovered) you need to install the "WhatsApp" app on your phone! Don't worry. The app is free to download.
