Covid Recovery Day - Wednesday 4th August 2021
On Wednesday 4th August members of Carnmoney Parish Church hosted a Covid Recovery Day in their church hall. The event which took place during the daytime and evening sprung out of a desire to help members of both the church and the local community reflect on and process their experiences of the pandemic. A number of different reflective prayer stations were set up around the hall and people were invited to wander around at their own pace and reflect at each station at a level comfortable to them. There was a quiet corner at one end of the hall and an area in which refreshments were served throughout the day at the other end, with people on hand to chat and pray with people if they wanted. At 9am the different themes of the day were pulled together and prayers were offered in a concluding service of Evening prayer.
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.
