You are not alone
Jesus said ‘Remember, I will always be with you’ Matt 28:20
This continued to be an anxious time. While we wrestle with our anxiety, we want you to know that Jesus is with you, and that we have a God of hope, who loves us and promises to be with us always.
If you or someone you know is in a position where you need some additional support and don’t have family, friends or neighbours to turn to, there are people around the community willing to help. We’re especially aware that many of the vulnerable in our community are not on the internet and therefore may not know of all the help and support that is available. Please call on friends, family and people you know where possible. If you need help and don’t know where to go, please contact Rev Dan.
You can join our Tues News mailing list to receive a weekly email from Rev Dan each Tuesday with practical info, pastoral support and spiritual encouragement.
You can contact Rev Dan by email: email@example.com or phone 01243 823895
Pastoral and Spiritual Care
Our church pastoral network is keeping our church community connected by regular phone calls. If you would like to connect with the church in this way please contact Rev Dan. You can also read Rev Dan’s blog for regular spiritual input and worship resources.
You can read the government’s advice about how to support children and young people’s Wellbeing here.
Offering Practical Support
Getting Practical Support
If you are vulnerable and in need of shopping, prescriptions collected or someone to talk to you can access help through West Sussex County Council
If you live far away and are concerned about relatives who live locally please contact Rev Dan and we will try to point you in the right direction for help.
If you are worried about money then you can find advice at The Money Advice Service
Sadly some people have been taking advantage of the circumstances and abusing the vulnerable by coercing them for money and other things. The advice from the Methodist Church safeguarding team is as follows:
- Do not allow strangers into your home, even if they claim to be part of a Community Support Scheme. Check with the scheme first (not using the phone number supplied by your ‘visitor’)
- Do not pay for shopping in advance
- Pay for your shopping deliveries by:
- Bank transfer if you are online or a family member can arrange this
- Telephone banking – this can be arranged by phoning the number on the back of your bank card
- Cheque (if you don’t have Covid19)
- Cash as a last resort
Our advice is to call on friends, family and neighbours where possible. If you need help and don’t know where to go, please contact Rev Dan.
If you are being abused, concerned about some, or worried you may commit domestic abuse – please seek help. Call 101, visit www.sussex.police.uk, or call the National Domestic Abuse Helpline, 0808 2000 247

A New Dawn
Creator of the hills and valleys,
Mountains and oceans,
Maker of all that is,
Give strength in weariness,
Confidence in uncertainty,
Wisdom in the unexpected,
Peace in the busyness.
God I give this,
and every day to you.
