Welcome to the Town Chaplaincy

We are back!

Chaplains are back on the streets and visiting shops and other work-places. Look out for us and feel free to chat!

We are particularly keen to support shop workers, especially those whose jobs are in jeopardy. The stresses and strains of the uncertainties of the last year are taking their toll and it can be healthy to talk to someone about the pressures you are feeling. Chaplains will listen and help you express yourself so that you can view your situation more clearly. We will seek to signpost you to others who can provide advice or practical support. Help is available.

Or, you might just want to have a ‘normal’ conversation with someone after so long not meeting people. We all, chaplains included, feel uncomfortable at meeting people now restrictions are being lifted. So no one need feel alone.

Keeping safe and getting vaccinated are still high priorities. Wear a mask indoors, keep some distance from others and wash your hands regularly!

We will also be on London Road at lunch time and in the afternoon to support the cafe and food table at the church.

And on 3rd April we will be supporting local churches as they present the meaning of Easter – and it is not just about bunnies and eggs, however cute they may be!

May God bless you and watch over you.
