COVID-19 Update – 9 April

This Easter weekend will be a strange time for lots of us. My family and I normally visit my children's grandmother in Dorset, but like so many we'll be connecting via technology instead.

Just a phone call can make a huge difference at this time!

And this weekend will be particularly difficult for those working in our NHS, care homes and all key workers - I'll be thinking of them when we clap our thanks this evening.

As tempting as it might be, we should think of those in our NHS and resist the urge to go outside over the weekend.

Helping Homeless People

KCAH (Kingston Churches Action on Homelessness) is calling out for more volunteers to help them to support homeless people in our community.

They need help in two specific areas:

  • Volunteers to distribute the evening meal each day at the hotel where a number of rough sleepers have been placed.
  • Drivers to deliver care packages to our tenants in our temporary accommodation project who are self-isolating.
