Telephone Service info from the Diocese

Dear Friends, 


This week Archbishop Justin launched Daily Hope, a free national phone line offering music, prayers and reflections as well as full worship services by telephone. As much of our ministry has moved online due to the closure of churches, we know that many of you have concerns for those members of our communities who do not have access to the internet, and may be most isolated at this time.

The new free phone line – which is available 24 hours a day on 0800 804 8044 – has been set up particularly with those unable to join online church services during the period of restrictions in mind.

Callers will hear a special greeting from the Archbishop before being able to choose from a range of options, including hymns, prayers, reflections and advice on COVID-19. We hope that you will be able to offer this phone line to members of your community who may benefit from it, and that it will be a useful tool in support of your own ministry, offering hope and encouragement to those in your communities who are struggling. Further information about the phone line is available here.


It remains vitally important that we all remember to take time to care for our own wellbeing even while we are busy responding to the needs of our communities. As part of St Luke’s Clergy Wellbeing Programme, Kate Wiebe has offered some useful advice on how to deal with the ongoing emotional impact of a crisis and attend to your own wellbeing in a time when ordinary healthy rhythms have been lost. We recommend you read her thoughts on how to make a start on long-term recovery from crisis, available here.


With our prayers for you all,   


Bishop Tim, Bishop David and Bishop Debbie  

  

And the Bishop’s Staff Team:   

Andrew Robinson, Diocesan Chief Executive    

Catherine Ogle, Dean of Winchester   

Peter Rouch, Archdeacon of Bournemouth   

Richard Brand, Archdeacon of Winchester   

Mat Phipps, Bishop’s Chaplain   

Message from Father John

Wesley

'Wesley' accompanying me at Evening Prayer on Wednesday. Note the bell rope in the background - the Abbey bell is tolled before Morning and Evening Prayer, a reminder to the community of the Church's rhythm of prayer, continuously offered here since the time of the Cistercian community.
If you would like me to include anything during these times of prayer, do let me know.

Every blessing,

Fr John & Wesley

The Crossings

At its recent meeting in early November, the Beaulieu Abbey Church PCC heard an explanation by John Hughes of the activities of The Crossings; an initiative aimed at assisting any in our area who are combating homelessness.  The PCC unanimously agreed to devote its Crib Service (Christmas Eve) collection to The Crossings. 

Staff at The Crossings have recently launched a website, whose url is www.thecrossings.org.uk.  Due to some privacy issues, I have not been able to provide a clickable link for the moment.  However, if you copy this url and then paste it into your browser, this will (believe me!!)  take you to their website where full information is provided both on what The Crossings is striving to achieve, and what we as individuals can do the support it.

As Christmas approaches, and as this cold and wet weather continues, the plight of the homeless becomes even more serious.  We do actively encourage your support.
