Locked down – but wide open!

Locked down – but wide open!

Our buildings are closed – but our churches certainly aren’t! Wherever you look on the Wirral, you will find congregations connecting with one another and reachjihng out to their communities. Supplying food to those who need it, remembering those who have lost their lives, maintaining contact with those locked down at home, and sharing studies and services online – there has been a creative explosion in our worship, fellowship and service. Facebook, Zoom, podcasting, WhatsApp and the good old telephone system have been pressed into service to keep us connected and build up our faith.

The Good Neighbours Group has been meeting for a couple of years to share information and inspiration across our churches. In lieu of a meeting, this month people shared reports of what their churches have been doing. Here are five stories for you to read – and maybe get inspired yourselves. Remember that we are collecting ansd sharing resources on our Resources Page here, and also on our Facebook Page.

Shared Reading during Lockdown

I arrogantly always felt it to be quite la-di-da and a bit too ‘up in the clouds’ for me… All that changed when Sue and I set up a Shared Reading group in our church last September. We were trained by a wonderful organisation called the Reader, who have 600 groups operating around the country. As you may have guessed, poetry (and extracts of books) play a large part in the weekly sessions.

Suddenly I was in charge of the weekly poem! On the advice of a close friend I chose ‘I wandered lonely as a cloud’ by William Wordsworth as my first poem. After reading it someone in our group proudly proclaimed that they knew this poem by heart. ‘Off you go then’, I said and she recited it from memory.
