You may have already heard of the difference that TLG ‘Boxes of Hope’ are making across the UK – over 30,000 meals already provided to families struggling to eat at this time. Within the chaos of the corona virus, God continues to call local churches to support their community and spread His hope.
These care packages contain both food and activity ideas for children; they aim to meet families’ physical and emotional needs in such a challenging time. We have guidelines, resources to include, ways of tracking impact and start-up funding of £200 to help churches launch.

We hope it could really equip churches in their support to families over the summer.
We will soon be running an additional project to support the local church: Emotional First Aid. Emotional First Aid will be a FREE and easy to understand online training and resource that equips people to support those struggling with their emotional and mental health as a result of this pandemic. These webinars will help individuals and organisation to see and understand emotional signals, and know how to respond to them effectively.
Brunswick Parish Church are also doing lot of ‘Mission With stuff such as hosting free takeaway hot meals supplied by ‘Feed My City’ (‘Brunswick Beestro’) and have individuals involved with Ardwick Mutual Aid Group.
How is your church responding to COVID-19 on your estate? What good news have you to share about how God is at work in your community? Please do get in touch with us as we would love to hear your story and to put it out there.
I am offering family worship on a Sunday, a daily craft and two lots of bed time stories live each day. Parish wise we have evening and morning prayer each day and worship on a Sunday. We are contacting everyone we have details for and where we have had postal addresses has sent postcards.

Sport4Life’s new delivery model includes support for schools and key workers and young people isolated at home — read more about it below
While it remains unclear as to what the immediate future will bring, we are adapting the way we work to ensure we can continue to support young people, at a time when they need us the most.
This new model includes support for schools and key workers and young people isolated at home.
WE ARE ALL IN THIS TOGETHER
Moving mentoring online
Online mentoring through Google Hangouts and other virtual platforms, connects young people (aged 11-29) with experienced Sport 4 Life UK mentors to support them in making confident and informed decisions about their future.
Online mentoring is a supportive, structured relationship which helps young people develop skills and achieve their goals.
FREE offer to schools
With the closure of schools, colleges, and increased social distancing and isolation measures, we need to find new ways of supporting young people.
Online mentoring with Sport 4 Life UK is a FREE service for schools, helping to provide one-to-one support and structure to pupils (aged 11+), increase self-confidence and improve physical and mental wellbeing.
Using a variety of online and distance learning approaches, Sport 4 Life UK will work with schools to support the most vulnerable individual students staying at home, or provide group activities for those still in the classroom.
We need to make the most of our time in isolation, and there has never been a better time to learn a new skill or gain a qualification.
