As the UK records over 100,000 deaths due to Coronavirus, please join us in prayer for the nation each day at 6pm.  See the letter from the Archbishops and prayer leaflet from the C of E.

Could you – or someone you know – volunteer to be part of the vaccination campaign? There are five different roles in which volunteers are required – see below for details.

Last, but by no means least, there are opportunities to connect to other church members socially on Zoom at 11am on Sunday and Wednesday.

God bless you – Richard

Be part of this historic effort!

Communities 1st and partners have been busy recruiting volunteers to support the vaccination centres.

Over 2,400 volunteers have now signed up and provided 5,300 hours of support for community vaccination sites in a variety of roles, from stewarding to front of house.

It is expected that a further 3,000-4,000 volunteers will be needed over the coming weeks as more vaccination centres open up.

Anyone who would like to volunteer in a non-clinical role can sign up here:


The Archbishops of Canterbury and York have encouraged us all to pause and pray at 6pm each day, you can read more about it here in the letter they wrote.

The Church of England has produced a leaflet with prayers for each day of the week.  You can download it here, or pick up a copy from the back of St Helen’s church.
