Sometimes the most important thing is to listen. Chaplains from Waterways Chaplaincy (part of the Church Army family) can often be found offering a listening ear, just like they did with Tony* who was struggling with suicidal thoughts. (*name changed)
Earlier this year, chaplains from Waterways Chaplaincy (part of the Church Army family) were alerted to the plight of a man and his cat, both of whom were in danger due to a sinking canal boat. A chaplain bravely stepped in!
Sandra has been joining in with an online Bible Study during lockdown in Liverpool, run by Church Army Evangelist Cherith. It's incredible to hear how God is at work in people's lives despite being unable to meet with them in person due to the pandemic.
In Hackney, Andrena Palmer is running online workshops to help improve the self-esteem and mental health of young black women like Kira* and Gaynor*. (*names changed)
After her husband of 34 years left her and her children stopped coming to visit, Cara struggled with her mental health. She tried to deal with it on her own but found it was too much to cope with. (*name changed) (Trigger warning: suicide)
