Carnmoney Parish Church, Diocese of Connor, hosted a Covid Recovery Day as a way of helping members of the church and the local community to reflect on and process their experiences of the pandemic.
This took place on Wednesday, August 4th, 2021, when a number of different reflective prayer stations were set up around the church hall and people were invited to wander around at their own pace and reflect at each station.
There was a quiet corner at one end of the hall, and refreshments were served throughout the day at the other end, with people on hand to chat and pray with people if they wanted.
At 9pm, the different themes of the day were pulled together and prayers were offered in a concluding service of Evening Prayer.
The rector, the Rev Andy Heber, said: “Many church members offered their time and gifts to make the day a success, and feedback from those who attended was very positive.
“The day proved to be a great way to help the church connect with the local community, offering something which people hopefully found helpful and beneficial.”
