WHAT'S NEW?

Since mid-March, the number of people who are self-isolating has increased rapidly, with those over 70 or with pre-existing health conditions strongly advised against physical contact with the outside world. For some of these people, it will mean no contact with anyone, leading to profound loneliness and a deterioration in their mental health. Although physical contact is not now possible, a telephone call can be crucial to those who would otherwise experience extreme loneliness.

Two’s Company, a phone befriending service which has been set up in partnership with national charity, Linking Lives UK, aims to provide companionship to those most susceptible to isolation at this time, due to age, location, health or others factors.

Picking up the phone and chatting to someone in need of company is something that they can do, and in some2cases this could prove to literally be a lifeline.

Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us, to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, for ever and ever! Amen.
