The latest issue of the Diocesan Magazine, European Anglicans focuses specifically on the virtual Diocesan Synod Gathering on 23 June, sharing perspectives from Bishop Robert and Bishop David, and reflections from our Archdeacons on the impact of Covid-19 in their areas across the Diocese.
Bishop Robert writes of how the effects of the Covid-19 pandemic have been massive on physical wellbeing, mental health, on our elderly, on our children, on our young people. Covid-19 is a social, health and economic crisis across Europe of a magnitude unparalleled in our generation. He reflects that in these conditions of fear and uncertainty, church life has been especially important and the community of the church has been meeting virtually and pastoral care has continued through phone calls, appreciative messages and acts of kindness. As Bishop Robert says, our buildings may have been closed, but Jesus is alive and so is his church!
