We’re here for you

During the lockdown

Since the start of the Coronavirus and subsequent lockdown, we have all been experiencing a different kind of daily life, and this has almost always involved loss or separation of some kind or another.

Loss

Loss of physical contact with our friends, family and neighbours, loss of freedom to socialise or travel, loss of work, loss of normal daily routine, and of course sadly, sometimes the loss of friends and family through death.

Loneliness

Feelings of loneliness, isolation, frustration, despair and even anger are common in these circumstances, and we are here to lend a listening ear by telephone, if this would help you. Please click the ‘Get in touch’ button at the bottom of this page, or leave a telephone message on 01726 64299, and one of our pastoral team will get back to you within a couple of days.

Cornwall Bereavement Network

There are also many specialist resources which you might find helpful, and the recently set up Cornwall Bereavement Network www.cornwallbereavementnetwork.org gives details of all of these services.

A prayer

You might like to use the following prayer:

Breathe your peace within me, Lord
peace such as only you can give.
When I fret about tomorrow,
when I worry about my loved ones,
when I question whether I can cope,
when my stomach feels knotted and panic rises within me,
help me to hear your still small voice, rebuking the wind and waves,
stilling the storm, calming the rolling waves,
and in place of a troubled, anxious spirit,
rest for my soul. Amen

A scripture

“Even though I walk through the darkest valley, I will fear no evil for you are with me. Your rod and your staff they comfort me.” Psalm 23 v 4.
