A church in Weaverham, Cheshire, has created a ‘Covid Corner’, a space to reflect on the positive and negative experiences of the coronavirus lockdown.

St Mary’s Church hopes to encourage members of the church and the wider community to come and write down their experiences in a Memorial book.

The ‘Covid Corner’ features a stained-glass window which reminds people to be thankful to the NHS, food banks and food deliveries, vaccines and the church and community.

A book of reflections where people are invited “to add anything you wish about Covid (including photographs)” is also available.

“You might wish to write a poem, say a thank you, write about a new experience during lockdown, add a photo of a lockdown craft project, add a newspaper cutting or even leave a CD or DVD. Anything you like as long as it can be put in the books,” the church said in a statement.

It continued: “The books are intended to contain contributions from the whole community, so please invite other people to also contribute.”

The church is open before and after the 8.30am, 10.30am and 6.30pm Sunday services and from 14th August, it will be open on Saturdays from 10am until noon.

A Monthly Gift Of $11 Makes A World Of Difference

In a world of fake news there’s never been a greater need for quality Christian journalism. Premier’s mission is to provide the Church with the most up to date and relevant news, told from a Christian perspective. But we can’t do it without you.

Unlike many websites we haven't put up a paywall — we want to keep our journalism free at the point of need and as open as we can. Premier’s news output takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. No one in the USA is sharing news like we are across radio, magazines and online so please help us to continue that today.

For a monthly gift of $11 or more we’d also be able to send you a free copy of the brand new Premier Bible, a wonderful Anglicised version of the NLT packed with exclusive bonus content, reading plan and resources to help you get the most out of scripture.

Your monthly support will make a world of difference. Thank you.
