The CHAT group (Come Here And Talk) met on Tuesday (virtually of course on Zoom). Nine members discussed a variety of topics but focussed on St Mary’s (and every other place of worship) being closed. It is at times like these when people’s faith needs reassurance and the best place to find it is in a church. But the risk of passing on the virus by touching a surface, like a pew, which might be infected is too great. So sadly, the Government, backed by the Archbishop of Canterbury, no less, decreed churches must be closed. We must all follow the law. An alternative reflective space is the graveyard – but remember the isolation rules.

If you would like to join the CHAT group just ring Sue Farr on 614861.
