 Isle Court

Isle Court Nursing Home is within our Severn Loop Parishes.  Once a month the Revd Mary-Lou Toop and Joyce Jagger visit to take a service of Holy Communion in a sitting room at the nursing home.  These services are well attended – the congregation is a steady 12 – and we are told how much they value the continuity of the worship that had been a regular part of their lives.  During the service we have two hymns, a reading, a themed sermon and communion is shared.  We are enjoying building relationships between the residents, the staff and us.  Can we ask that the residents, the staff and the community are remembered in our prayers in 2016?
