Many of us will have now been vaccinated and this includes our Bishops. Bishop Alan has sent out this information with his weekly email.
'Like many of you, I have, along with Bishop's Richard and Michael, been vaccinated. I urge you to share two messages in your congregations and communities:
- when you are offered a vaccination take it!
- as 'none are safe until all are safe,' consider giving a donation in thankfulness for our own vaccinations so that either vaccines can be purchased for countries that need then or to support people living in communities that have been severely affected by the pandemic.
Those who wish to give can do so to:
- The COVAX fund which is buying and delivering vaccines to countries around the world – you may have seen their first work taking place this week in Ghana. COVAX is being generously supported by the UK Government but individuals can contribute too.
- The United Nations Children's Fund UNICEF, is collecting here.
- 'Arm in Arm', Celebrate, Donate, Vaccinate
Christian Aid has an appeal for humanitarian relief in support of communities overseas affected by COVID that just don't have the kind of social safety nets that we're used here in the United Kingdom. Donations to their appeal can be made here.'
You can find the service on all the usual platforms, including our website https://www.stmaryseatonbray.org.uk
Don't forget that St Mary's is open for private prayer on Wednesdays and Sundays between 11am and 3pm.
With every blessing,
