Pandemic Links and Resources

USEFUL LINKS for troubled times

Bishop’s Messages and Sermons

We are all having to adapt and deal with the unknown.  The joy of being part of the body of Christ is that we all have different gifts and talents that can be used to bless each other and those around us.

Please find below a list of some of the ways our parishes are responding and reaching out – some you may be able to emulate, but some you may just want to engage with and share with your congregations.

There are also some links to national resources and resources for those who do not have access to the internet.

If you have anything you think could be usefully added, please let me know –
Keep an eye on the Deanery Facebook page too, I will share anything I think may be of interest.
