A message from our Vicar
We are living in unprecedented times. The Covid19 pandemic has caused panic throughout the world and on our doorstep. Witness the carnage in any local supermarket. Our nearby Asda being a perfect example. Rows and rows of shelves emptied as people in their fear and confusion buy goods as if there will be no tomorrow.
May I assure you, there is no need for panic. As Christians we have a hope that cannot be displaced even by a world pandemic. Remember the words of Paul in Romans 8…
Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall trouble or hardship or persecution or famine or nakedness or danger or sword? …
No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through Him who loved us. For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord. ....

What we are doing
We are making online resources available so that we can encourage one another at this time.
- We will upload videos to our YouTube site (details below). If you can, we recommend you keep checking our channel as we will regularly add new content for our mutual encouragement.
- There a number of videos that we hope to produce on a regular weekly basis - links to the latest versions are here.
- There is a playlist of our usual Sunday Service songs on our YouTube channel (details below)
- We also have various downloadable resources (details below)
- If you are self-isolating or particularly vulnerable, please let us know by contacting Deane so that we can offer support as is needed.
What you can do
- Offer support to your immediate neighbours as described on our Community page. If you live in the parish and use social media, then join the Poulton Lancelyn and Spital Residents Facebook page which we have set up on behalf of the community.
- Please pray for one another and keep in touch by phone, email and social media - just because we are physically isolating or distancing ourselves, does not imply being isolated from relationships with others in our church family.
- Be creative! If you are able to do things together over Skype, WhatsApp or in other ways then go for it.
- If you are able to offer help and support to those in our congregation who are self-isolating, please let us know by contacting Deane.

- Click this link to go directly to our ‘Playlists’ on our YouTube channel. Here you can find a playlist of our Sunday Service songs as well as a playlist of kids songs that we regularly sing. Please note: These videos are hosted on YouTube so as you go through the playlist, adverts may play both before and after the songs. We have no control over the adverts YouTube chooses to show you, but you often have the option to ‘skip ad’ in the bottom right hand corner of the video you have chosen.
