West Berkshire Coronorvirus Diaries
(See below an excerpt from a West Berkshire Parish Priest )
'' Being a Parish Priest, and I have been since 1988, I have always worked from home or the parish office attached to the Vicarage or church, so that hasn’t changed much for me. What has changed is how I go about the work of a Parish Priest.
The phrase ‘more tea Vicar’, is one we all know and it is part of the daily life of a priest, popping in to see how people are doing, talking about their concerns, their faith and generally helping them to make sense of an ever changing world.
All of this has changed with the social distancing guidelines, which are needed to combat this pandemic, but which go against everything that makes me a parish priest.
I have only been in West Berkshire since December 2016, and part of The Hermitage Team of Churches since July 2018. The ‘Team’ is made up of 7 churches From Cold Ash in the South to East Ilsley in the North.''
