Responsive & Interactive

The church has remained active and has responded well to the covid-19 continuing to love thy neighbour with Neighbourhood Buddies. These buddies are still active and will help with shopping and with prescription pick ups.  Just contact Rev Laura for details. revlauraleatherbarrow@gmail.com.

Dear Friends, we are living in increasingly anxious times for everyone because of the Coronavirus (Covid-19) situation.
​I want to reassure you that our prayers and pastoral support, especially for the most vulnerable in our communities, is something that all churches including us at St Cuthberts will continue to take very seriously.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 


We have done a thorough risk assessment and the church is now marked up with a one-way system and 2-metre markings although we now group the chairs in sets of six going beyond government guidelines to keep everyone safe. We still ask that in love you wear a face mask for services to protect the vulnerable. 

You do not need to wear a mask for the tea and coffee or any events where food and drink is served. 


As well as the pain of this situation comes an opportunity for us to explore the truth we proclaim that ‘The Church’ is the people of God and not confined to a building.
We will seek different ways to be church other than congregating together in person.
Using the internet and technology we will use Zoom and Youtube platforms as well as updating Facebook pages. 


If you would like someone to talk to or pray for you over the telephone please ring me Rev'd Laura on 07780448274. Or contact me via messenger, what’s app, or email.

We are also seeking advice about how we might be able to safely help the most vulnerable and isolated of our parish with simple practical needs such as grocery shopping etc. The buddies must continue to do this in a safe way and I thank you that St Cuthberts is looking after our parish so well.

Things are changing rapidly at the moment so please return to this site regularly for updates as we are committed to following the national church guidance which is updated daily at Coronavirus (COVID-19) guidance for churches @ The Church of England

As a church we have put a buddy system in place and are using this to keep parishioners safe during isolation and in contact with the church.
Our buddies have already helped a number in Isolation and many joined the scheme so that each street is cared for.

You can do this by either filling in the card that you can see below and delivering to neighbours or phone Rev Laura on 07780448274 and give her your name and number and she can add you to the whats app group. You must obey all government officials and announcements and keep safe as a priority.

We are as a church working closely with our local councillors Anthony and others.

Facebook is regularly updated and we have issued a service of isolation and we can say this together with Communion

Intercessions - : Please remember and pray for the most vulnerable in our community. There are those who will be self-isolating and who may be feeling anxious. We should, as a society, do all within our power to keep ourselves and each other safe.
Please remember and pray for those who work on the front line, the most vulnerable and those who have contracted COVID-19.

"Lord Jesus Christ, you taught us to love our neighbour, and to care for those in need as if we were caring for you. In this time of anxiety, give us strength to comfort the fearful, to tend the sick, and to assure the isolated of our love, and your love, for your name’s sake. Amen."

We are trying to do our very best here at St Cuthberts Church and we would ask that we all pull together during this difficult and challenging time. There is no doubt a huge level of disruption and disappointment but we must keep safe and protect all our neighbours.
we will do our best to maintain ministry following the advice given which may change on a day to day basis. We ask that you bear with us and thank you for your support.
