Help in isolation

At this time of great need God wants to use us as salt and light in our community and among our friends and family. 

We want to help people, but we must be wise and follow the guidelines given by the government to protect others as well as ourselves. Some of us who are used to having hands-on roles may, at this time, need to adjust to a role which is more behind the scenes, equipping, encouraging and praying, especially if we are in a more vulnerable group or if we’re self-isolating. 

 As Christians we should be active in community initiatives which are already in place. Can you offer support to others through a neighbourhood group or WhatsApp group or can you initiate one? Let your neighbours know that you are praying for them not just offering practical help.

This is document is a response to the impact of the virus and the preventaive measures being put in place. We hope it will be a help and encouragement to you during this time.

Please support local organisations which are serving the most vulnerable people in our town. Can you financially support Wycombe Homeless Connection or One Can Trust who have plenty of donated food stocks at present but need donations to provide food packages at a larger scale. Could you organise a doorstep collection point for One Can Trust? Find out more here.
