Welcome to the Parish of Teme Valley North, set in the beautiful Teme Valley. If you are new here, it’s great to see you! Please follow this link to find out more about us.
I don’t know about you but for me, Lockdown Three has been particularly hard. The days have been short, the weather cold and the news very depressing as the virus spread so rapidly once again. Passing that awful milestone of 100,000 Covid deaths was a sobering moment and the pressure on health and care staff, on clergy and families has been immense. As a country we have endured more deaths per head of population than any other nation so far. Every community in the Diocese has been affected, with the loss from Covid particularly acute in some communities, notably where poverty and overcrowding is worse. As we look to build back better over the coming twelve months, as a nation we must address issues of inequality and injustice that have been highlighted so starkly during this time. Two of our diocesan priorities as Kingdom People are to transform communities and to share hope – we will all need to play our part in building a fairer and better world.
