Summer fun days bring communities together. While church buildings are closed due to Covid-19, HOPE is preparing Virtual Fun Day resources to help churches build strong communities online and in other ways. Churches have a key part to play in helping to combat mental health issues brought on by isolation and restoring community life as the lockdown lifts.
Build relationships by working together with other community groups, and keep in touch with other organisations and civic officers in your village, town or city to rethink community services and charity work as lockdown ends. Let's give servant leadership to our communities and plan to bring our communities together in appropriate ways online and in person.
The HOPE for All magazine is an undated resource you can give away at any time of year. Include copies in food parcels distributed to people in need in your community. Our website hopeinfo.org.uk includes a virtual version of the magazine and has a range of features to share with those exploring faith and looking for hope.
