    Dear God, help me. You know what I crave. You know my struggles. I call out to You. You have all the answers on how to be free. Cleanse my thoughts, cleanse my body, and renew my mind. Guide me through this valley to a place of victory. In Jesus name I pray. Amen.

    Quote of the day, Tuesday 4th August

    " Difference is the essence of humanity. Difference is an accident of birth, and it should therefore never be the source of hatred or conflict. Therein lies a most fundamental principle of peace: respect for diversity.” - John Hume

    DIOCESE OF TRURO

    GUIDANCE ON RESPONDING TO THE CHALLENGES POSED BY THE CORONAVIRUS OUTBREAK 

    LATEST CORONAVIRUS UPDATES ON 31.07.20

    Dear friends

    As you might have heard on the news, at a press conference earlier today the Prime Minister announced plans to make face coverings mandatory in places of worship from August 8 - a week tomorrow. 

    The Government has also withdrawn guidance to permit indoor professional performances with immediate effect. 

    Colleagues with the national church will study detailed government regulations and guidance once they are available and will then update our own guidance accordingly. The Recovery Group will meet early next week to progress this. 

    In the meantime, we continue to strongly advise that face coverings should be worn by all those attending a place of worship, including ministers, worshippers, staff, volunteers, contractors and visitors, where there may be other people present; remembering that they are mainly intended to protect other people, not the wearer, from coronavirus (COVID-19) and that they are not a replacement for physical distancing and regular hand washing.

    There is also a new FAQ on the national church’s Covid-19 guidance page here  entitled ‘What are the first steps to take if we believe there has been a local breakout’. That currently links through to Public Health England guidance, here

    As soon as we have more news for you, we will of course be in touch.

    Our Sunday morning all-age worship is continuing on the Truro Diocese Facebook page. This week Charlotte and Steve Irwin will lead the event, starting at 9.30am. Charlotte said: "We're going on a picnic this Sunday. Come along, no food required, just bring two twist ties, some washing up liquid and a small container of water. What on earth can we make from such ordinary things?” You’ll have to join them live at 9.30, or catch up later on Facebook, to find out!

    If you have colleagues who are on this distribution list but who do not have email, I would be grateful if you could please let them know the latest. 

    Keep safe everybody!

    With all best wishes,

    Richard
