COVID-19 – St. Edwards Poster

Lisa Brown has put together a brilliant poster of some of our parishioners working together to send a special message to everyone at this difficult time. Click here to view the poster.

Consolation in times of Isolation?

Jo Boyce, a songwriter, musician, singer and worship leader, has been streaming short 10 minute video’s to raise our spirits through this difficult time. In Jo’s owns words…

We are living through the strangest of times, and I really hope and pray this message finds you safe and well.

Terms like social distancing, self-isolation and lock-down have become common parlance. And the word ‘unprecedented’ is being used with unprecedented frequency as we strive to protect each other from the spread of the Coronavirus.

In the midst of all this we are finding new ways to ‘be Church’ – new creative ways to worship together and minister to each other.

Our contribution to this new digital life of faith is a Facebook Live video reflection, each weekday evening at about 7:15pm, sharing a few words of hope and a song of consolation.
