Welcome to Kersey Church and Shrine
...because there's more to life
Life has changed beyond all recognition over the last 12 weeks, however we are navigating now less cynical and more grateful. We have brought new energy to caring for others. Our faith in God, the kindness of others and our collective strength have all increased. We are closer; whilst sadly being distant from many of our loved ones.
The church is stronger than its flint and mortar. We still meet but we meet online and in greater numbers than before. We care for others both in prayer and in practice more than we have ever done - but we do care deeply for our church building, for the peace it brings to our souls and the joy it brings when the parish gets together. The building is open again and we bring into it the lessons we have learnt about faith, community and the transformation of our hope.
Please watch our short video guide to visiting.
We've spent the last three months responding to the crisis by doing so much for our communities: raising money for hospital staff welfare; making hundreds and hundreds of virtual visit telephone calls; distributing meals twice a week, keeping everyone stay connected with our four videos a week; and sadly helping many people say goodbye to their loved ones.
But we need to make sure that the church can stay open and for that we need your help. It's really simple and it's something we do together, please can you take part by making a monthly contribution? It's super easy but completely changes the prospect of your church staying open and serving the community. The government will also add 25% to your contribution if you pay tax. We can stay open with your monthly giving, thank you!
