Questions in a Pandemic: Charlton’s locked-down churches open WhatsApp service

Graphic promoting church WhatsApp group

Charlton’s two Anglican churches have closed their doors during the lockdown, but they are exploring new ways of communicating with their community. The rector of the benefice of Charlton, the Rev Liz Newman, says…

We are starting a WhatsApp group open to people who call themselves religious and those who don’t to share together the reflections that arise out of the time we’re living through. It occurs to us there may be people who have nowhere to share some of the big questions that the health crisis is provoking and we hope to provide a welcoming and non-judgemental platform where they can be aired, shared and wondered about together.

You can get in touch with the group on 07922 587 263.


We tell the SE7 stories you won’t read elsewhere. We can’t do it without your help.
