From Rev Trish,

Everyone will be receiving this itemr under extraordinary circumstances that exist, not only in our own country, but across the world. As I write this on 26th March we are just a few days in to tighter restrictions intended to slow down the spread of Covid 19. So, I find writing this much more difficult than usual. Usually I would write about the many events and services held recently and look forward to the great celebration of Easter. But we are in unusual times.

Indeed as I write I don’t know whether you will receive this in the “usual” way – as a paper copy of the Newsletter through your door. In fact there is very little of life that is remaining normal at the moment except that amongst most people, in this village and beyond, a true neighbourliness continues and in fact is extending.

Many of us are concerned for elderly and vulnerable neighbours and in true High Legh style it seems that much is being done to support them all in a safe way. Of course, this is not at all limited to villages such as High Legh. Across the country and across the world most people are seeking to alleviate suffering, deprivation and anxiety whether as a direct result of the illness or as a consequence of the necessary restrictions on social contact.

Life in the church is also different. St John’s church is closed and, like other churches, we are attempting to provide worship resources online and in other electronic and digital ways. We are also providing phone contact for caring conversations, lighting candles to encourage hope and perseverance and making our homes the centre of our prayer and worship. We are very much still the church of Christ. The church is not the building – it is the Christians who together form the body of Christ. Saint Theresa reminds us of this in her words:

“Christ has no body now but yours. No hands, no feet on earth but yours. Yours are the eyes through which he looks compassion on this world. Yours are the feet with which he walks to do good. Yours are the hands through which he blesses all the world. Yours are the hands, yours are the feet, yours are the eyes, you are his body. Christ has no body now on earth but yours.”

Whilst this was addressed to Christians, compassion and charity are not exclusively Christian attributes though they are the primary being of Christians. In High Legh we see that the whole community is seeking to love our neighbours as ourselves. Even the children are playing their part as can be seen from this rainbow message and the beautifully decorated pebbles left outside the church.

The building of St John’s is much loved by many in the community and will be available again before too long for the celebrations of life – weddings and baptisms, the pivotal moments such as funerals and to participate in the many community events that cement our sense of community here in the village not only for now but for future generations.
