Christian Meditation 

Whilst we are confined to our self isolation – mediation is a great way to begin your day.

While we can no longer come together to meditate, you may still practice at home. WCCMA (The World Community for Christian Meditation Australia) has a fantastic resource of online meditation sessions you can join in with. Please take a look using this link. WCCMA online meditation sessions
 

“Christian meditation is a form of contemplative prayer in which a structured attempt is made to become aware of and reflect upon the revelations of God.” Wikipedia

Knitting & Crochet Group 
Whilst at home in self-isolation  why not 
use your time to knit or crochet squares/blankets
for those in need.
Then when we emerge from our isolation, we are well stocked to give out blankets to those who need comfort and warmth both emotionally and/or physically.
 
A year round project, knit from home and drop into the Parish house when the time is right!
Donations of wool, Knitting needles, crochet hooks and sewing needles are always very appreciated.
