Responding to COVID-19
In accordance with the government's announcements the church office and community centre are closed at the prsent time. The church building is open at specific times for the purpose of individual prayer only.
We are aware that this is a time when many are concerned and anxious. We are praying for all of you, and will be doing all we can to offer support and maintain contact.
The church office, which we are running remotely, can still be contacted using the details at the bottom of this page.
If you are experiencing any of the symptoms of Coronavirus (a recent cough or high temperature, regardless of travel history) please follow the self-isolation advice on 111.nhs.uk
As we continue through the COVID-19 pandemic we are seeking as a church to ensure that we support one another as best we can. This will be particularly important as we can not currently gather together.
If you become aware of anyone in our wider community who needs some practical help please contact us using the details at the bottom of this page.
Our Link Neighbours scheme provides a basic pastoral level of pastoral contact and is part of a range of ways by we seek to offer pastoral care. We are currently refreshing the way Link Neighbours operates. If you have not received a contact from a Link Neighbour on behalf of St Leonard's and would like to be connected up in this way then please email email@example.com to let us know.
If you are a member of one of our Connect Groups then you willl have WhatsApp groups or email/text links for staying in contact.
