Coronavirus - Do You Need Support?

 

A Message From Rev David King:

“The current coronavirus outbreak is both deeply unsettling, but also a reminder of what a precious comfort it is to know the Lord Jesus.  We know that God has not abandoned us, that he remains in control and is caring for us, and that even the very worst outcome, though a hard path, is the way to eternal life for those who put their trust in Jesus.”

Pastoral Support

If you are currently isolating or feeling anxious, then we are able to support you in these ways: 
  • If you would like a phone buddy then you need to call or email the careline. (details below)
  • Our buddies are committed to phoning their designated person at least 2 or 3 times a week.
Careline number: 07823505090

Financial Support

St Patrick’s Church Compassion Fund: It is likely that, because of COVID-19,  some members of our church family will face times of considerable financial hardship.  The St Patrick’s Compassion Fund is aimed at facilitating us to support one of our church family financially when they fall on hard times, and to be able to do so in a confidential way.

More information about the fund as well as an application form can be found here: Compassion Fund 

Alternatively, application forms can be obtained from Rachel in the office.  If you need support in making an application, please speak to your group leader, Careline, a member of the PCC or staff team.
