We are encouraged to phone or send a card to anyone who may feel bereaved: Church of England research shows that 6 out of 10 adults have lost someone in the last year where they would have attended the funeral. 4 out of 10 say they have lost someone close to them.
You may like to use the 8.00pm ‘share the light’ moment to light candles and lanterns in windows.
You are also invited to print and use this Postcard for personal reflection on the day
If you would prefer, a short Act of Prayer for individuals or households can be downloaded here:
In addition, St. Andrews Church will be open on the 23rd March for you to come in, light a candle, say a prayer and reflect for a short while. Please follow the hygiene procedures posted in church and respect social distancing.
