NEWS FROM LAMBETH MISSION & ST MARY’S

 

LAMBETH MISSION STEWARDS' NEWS

It is difficult to write anything at present without referring to the incredible situation we are all in at present and thus I am sharing a few things which have been helpful at the Lambeth Mission during the crisis.

The week before we went into lockdown I had to postpone the Inner City Players production of Guys & Dolls which we had been rehearsing for over 10 weeks, hard work it seemed gone to waste.  However, though 2 weeks early, we performed for parents & friends on Sunday 24th, albeit without all the costumes, with a few words forgotten & not all scenery in place!  It was greatly enjoyed & will always remain very special in our minds; looking back it seems incredible, all the interaction & fun we were having.

On that same day I was 'inspired' to collect mobile phone numbers from the Lambeth Mission congregation thinking to create a WhatsApp group if lockdown was introduced.  It has been so helpful as we have shared prayers, encouragement & inspirational music & photos. 

We have also set up a few Zoom conferences, including purely social 'coffee mornings' when people have a ‘chat’ and a fellowship of evening prayer.  We have, of course, also been phoning people on the Pastoral care list, realising that some people do not have the technology necessary to access such groups & we remain concerned for those who might be extremely lonely. 

I look forward to seeing what others have been doing as we continue to face further challenging days.
