Looking after your spirituality

Hands Holding Heart

At times like this, when all that we know and rely on becomes a little less certain, we can almost feel that we have been pushed through some wardrobe doors, suddenly finding ourselves in an unfamiliar place, where the landscape is very different to all that we have been used to. This might feel stressful or worrying. We might also feel isolated or lonely, since not being able to connect with our usual support, social and faith communities, our friends and family.

Hope is a human need, whether it comes through faith, meditation, or simply through nature or from others - this is a time to remind ourselves of our hope.

Below are some links and resources that we hope you might find useful at this difficult and uncertain time.
