ST JAMES THE GREAT CHURCH INITIATIVES IN THIS TIME OF CRISIS

Ledbury Foodbank Collections

Starting Thursday 30 April, then every Tuesday and Thursday from 2.00pm – 4.00pm until further notice

we are starting to collect food items for the Ledbury food bank, for distribution to those in need in the Ledbury and surrounding areas. At this time, local food banks are struggling to keep up with demand and any contributions we can offer will be very welcome

There are two collection points:

one is a car with its boot open at Colwall railway station car park,

the other is a table on the driveway of the Hands house (Wisteria House, 7 Evendine Corner) at the far end of Colwall Green.

Please leave items in the boot of the car at the railway station or on the table at the Hands.

They will be delivered to the Foodbank the next day.

 

Any items are considered by the Foodbank, at the present time

Try not to leave perishable items if possible.

Sanitary items are useful (e.g. soap, shampoo etc) as well as any edible items.

 

Please maintain social distancing at all times.

******************************************

St James the Great Church has also produced a Prayer & Worship booklet online for the use of those who are missing going to church and others, too, who would value some comfort and inspiration in these difficult times of isolation. People are asked to contact colwallchurchoffice@gmail.com to ask for this booklet, available for everyone who would like to have it

I am sure we are all missing our families and friends whilst in our current lockdown.

Video calling helps families to stay in touch but it's often hard for smaller children to understand why they can't visit grandparents or go to their normal activities. 


A member came across this to share with her 4 year old granddaughter:


The Time We Spring-Cleaned the World


The world it got so busy,

There were people all around.

They left their germs behind them;

In the air and on the ground.


These germs grew bigger and stronger.

They wanted to come and stay.

They didn’t want to hurt anyone -

They just really wanted to play.


Sometimes they tried to hold your hand,

Or tickled your throat or your nose.

They could make you cough and sneeze

And make your face as red as a rose.


And so these germs took over.

They started to make people ill,

And with every cough we coughed

More and more germs would spill.


All the queens and kings had a meeting.

“It’s time to clean the world up!” they said.

And so they had to close lots of fun stuff,

Just so these germs couldn’t spread.


We couldn’t go to cinemas

Or restaurants for our tea.

There was no football or parties,

The world got as quiet as can be.


The kids stopped going to school,

The mums and dads went to work less.

Then a great, big, giant scrubbing brush

Cleaned the sky and the sea and the mess!


Dads started teaching the sums,

Sisters/brothers played with us more,

Mums were in charge of homework

And we read and played jigsaws galore!


The whole world was washing their hands

And building super toilet roll forts!

Outside was quiet and peaceful,

Now home was the place for all sports.


So we played in the world that was home

And our days filled up with fun and love,

And the germs they grew smaller and smaller

And the sun watched from up above.


Then one morning the sun woke up early,

She smiled and stretched her beams wide.

The world had been fully spring cleaned,

It was time to go back outside!


We opened our doors oh so slowly

And breathed in the clean and fresh air.

We promised that forever and always

Of this beautiful world we’d take care!

SEE THE THE WORLD'S GREAT TREASURES

Museums and art galleries may be closed but we can still visit them - and see things up close without people being in the way!

It's not just UK museums either - why not see the Rijks Museum or the Met?  Or maybe a less well known one such as the Walters Art Museum in Baltimore.  What they have in their collections is mind-blowing and this period of isolation is just the time to discover some of those treasures.

Coronavirus.jpg

Covid 19


Corona Virus is here to stay

much longer than we thought, they say.

China’s where it all began

then Italy, centred on Milan.

Now it’s everywhere it seems

that normal life is in our dreams.

We stay at home and shop online,

at first it all worked very fine.

Now a slot is hard to get

when ordering on the Internet.

There’s lots of things we cannot buy:

toilet rolls in short supply,

rice and pasta hard to find,

this whole shopping lark’s a bind!

We mustn’t drive to go for walks

and all the car parks cordoned off.

We mustn’t mingle with our friends,

thank goodness modern online trends

keep us in touch with those we treasure

to give us laughter, love and pleasure.

By the end when all this stops

we’ll have such tidy garden plots.

Our houses will be sparkling clean,

the tidiest and best they’ve ever been.

But, I ask, will we be sane

or ever be the same again?
