PLEASE HELP US REPAIR OUR

GRAVEYARD MEMORIALS

Our volunteers have always strived to maintain our church

grounds as a quiet tranquil place to visit

However, in recent times a number of memorials have become unsafe and, in accordance with Health and Safety requirements and advice from Blackburn Diocese, we had to lay flat 14 memorials, causing some distress to those visiting the graves of their loved ones.

 

The next of kin are responsible for returning memorials to a safe condition, and to date 5 memorials have been repaired, but we have been unable to locate the families of the remaining memorials. We would love to repair these headstones but as with most small churches our finances will not allow us to undertake the necessary repairs.

 

To help us achieve our aim St Peter's church has started a

'Crowd Funding' initiative to help us repair these memorials,

for further information and details of how to contribute

please follow this LINK

FOOD BANKS

During this trying time St Peter's Church is continuing to support

the Salvation Army Food Bank in Preston. If you would like

to donate any non-perishable foodstuffs please leave them

at the vicarage in Inskip; alternatively contact the vicar on

01772 690157 who will arrange collection.

The Salvation Army are especially in need of toiletries,

toilet rolls, washing powder and hand sanitiser at this time.

CARE IN THE CORONAVIRUS CRISIS

In these unprecedented times we are all asked to make sweeping changes in our lives, for our own good and that of others. In the Church of England, we have suspended church services to help to limit the spread of COVID-19. We won't meet on Sundays and the latest advice from the Church of England is that church buildings should also be shut to the public for private prayer.

 In our day-to-day lives can I encourage you to follow the advice given by the Government by: washing hands thoroughly and regularly, by catching anything you sneeze in a tissue and throwing the tissue in the bin, and, for the sake of all in our community, self-isolating if you or someone in your household, have a fever or new persistent cough, or are in a category of more vulnerable people (in particular if your immune system reduced, or you are over 70, or pregnant).

HELP!

Self-isolating can be hard, but in Inskip we are a caring community and help is at hand. If you would like any help, practical, emotional or spiritual, or if you would just like to chat, please do contact me on:

01772690157 or pp.hunter@sky.com

With our prayers and best wishes,

Rev Paul Hunter and all at St Peter's church
