Please note that the church APCM has been postponed until further notice.
If you are unfortunately admitted to hospital over the next few weeks you might find it helpful to prepare this in advance:-
From Bishop Martin:-
“As many of you will be aware, it is no longer possible for
clergy to visit people in hospital. As such, we are completely reliant on
our chaplaincy teams and even their access to some patients is very
restricted. What is more, the hospital chaplains are only now able to
visit people if they specifically request it.
As such, the diocese has suggested that if any of us are admitted to hospital and would like a chaplaincy visit, we need to actively ask for one. To help with this, the diocese has suggested that people may want to compete this form (or something similar) on admission. If you have any questions or would like to us to contact the chaplain at the Conquest, do let us know. “
Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. Phillipians 4:6-7
