*             Being isolated can be a very difficult time for many of us,
and anxieties and fears can play on our minds.

*             We want to offer a way of helping by offering daily prayer
times online via Zoom
which can help you during this time.

*             All are welcome, even if you have never set foot in a church,
and have no idea where to start!
