Coping with COVID

2020 has been really hard.

But we don’t have to tell you that. We’ve been bombarded with information and opinions, constant reminders that 2020 life as we scheduled it is not going according to plan. I am certain you’ve been stretched in super-human ways that have left us exhausted, anxious, scared, and so over this.

This space is for you, with updates on how Holmeswood (your church communtity) is doing its best to support you during this time. Church isn’t a one-way relationship; it takes a group of committed people to lean on each other and provide steady pillars to be leaned on. Some days you have a little energy or time to help out someone else; other days you need the helping (or just need to be left alone, which we completely get). Whatever your day, know that your church is always here because God is always present with us, full of love, mercy and support for whatever comes our way. Thanks be to God for that!
