Another month and another Coffee Morning that can't happen inside the church. BUT ...
What's to stop us enjoying a cuppa and some cake or biscuits at home instead - TOGETHER WHILE APART - shall we say 10.30am?
On the first Saturday of the month, 10.30am-12.30pm
While you're enjoying a brew, why not make a call and catch up on the phone, on Skype or on Zoom... send someone an email and check in with them...
We know it's not the same as being with each other in person at church. But those days WILL come again - and won't we enjoy them all the more!
May's Coffee Morning at church would have been raising money and awareness for Tearfund. If you're able to make a donation to Tearfund in lieu of the Coffee Morning, that would be wonderful. They have a Coronavirus Emergency Appeal running right now. You can donate to Tearfund online
