Due to the continued bad weather there will be a Said Service at St Philips tomorrow at 9.30am, however please don’t take any risks trying to get to Church. There is no parking in the church grounds due to snow and the path at the side of the Community Centre is quite icy so if you are coming by car our advice is to park in Briar Court car park. If you need any further information please let me know. Please keep an eye on your neighbours particularly during this prolonged bad weather. Thank you
Snow is falling across the country, leaving thousands of rough sleepers exposed to freezing temperatures. If you see someone you think may be sleeping rough, he...re's how you can help:
If you're in Scotland, contact your local council or visit the Shelter Scotland website for more info: https://scotland.shelter.org.uk/…/what_to_do_if_youve_nowhe…
2. Due to the cold weather, emergency winter night shelters should be in operation. Visit the Homeless Link directory which lists homelessness services in your area: https://www.homeless.org.uk/search-homelessness-services
3. If the person appears to be in immediate danger you should call 999. If you are worried about someone’s housing situation, direct them to the Shelter Housing Advice Helpline on 0808 800 4444. If the person is young you can find advice on the Centrepoint website: https://centrepoint.org.uk/youth-homelessness/get-help-now/
4. One of the most important things you can do is simply stop and talk to someone. Rough sleeping can be an isolating, devastating experience – a shared word could make all the difference. For further advice visit: https://www.crisis.org.uk/get-help/
It was a lovely service yesterday evening when Rev’d Sarah was licensed by Bishop Jonathan to her new parishes and diocesan role - everyone at St Philips wishes Sarah well as she starts her new jobs x
