The Irish Blessing
Reboot Campaign - the coronavirus crisis has changed the way we see the world. It’s reminded us of the fragility of life and exposed deep inequalities in society. As churches and communities adapt to find new ways to be a light in the darkness, many are re imagining what life could be like.
We don’t have to go back to the old system that keeps people living in poverty and damages the environment. Together, we can protect those most vulnerable in this crisis, and reboot the economy in a fair, sustainable way. We’re calling for a world that allows every person to flourish – along with all of creation.
This is a once-in-a-generation opportunity to build a better reality together. You have a vital role to play in shaping this future. Will you join us in calling for change? Click here.
MHA Sunday - 14 June
MHA Sunday will be held on 14 June, and this year we will be holding a virtual service of reflection at 3pm. Together, we will be reflecting on the experience and stories of the past couple of months and also remembering those we have sadly lost during this time. The service is open to all and will be accessible via the MHA Sunday webpage at 3pm on the day. Please share with family and friends and if possible you may want to broadcast the service to residents. The service will be available to view at any time after 3pm on 14 June if you cannot make the live-streamed time.
