What support is the church able to give?

The outbreak of the coronavirus means that all of us are living through difficult, worrying and challenging times. For a while ordinary life has been put on hold. Yet our needs continue - food, toiletries, medication, friendship and support. Fortunately, the good people of Arundel are rallying round and I've heard no end of examples of neighbours looking out for one another.

However, there's a chance that some people might be left isolated and running low on essential supplies. For this reason, your Parish Church, working closely with our Town Council, stands ready and willing to help. We have a team of trained pastoral visitors who have been through the official vetting provided by the DBS (“Disclosure and Barring Service”) process who are ready and willing to offer support and companionship over the telephone. We also have lots of volunteers who have offered to collect and deliver essential supplies (e.g. food, medication) for those who have no other support.

In short, if you're in need, whatever you need, we're here to help if we possibly can. Please telephone or email the Parish Office. The office is open Tuesday to Friday 9.30 am to 3.00 pm.

In case of urgent need or distress you may contact the vicar on 01903 885209 or vicar@stnicholas-arundel.co.uk
