Bishop of Hereford's Message
Hello everyone. This is going to be the first of a weekly video Iâ€™m going to send out while the coronavirus crisis continues. Iâ€™m conscious this isnâ€™t an ideal start to my ministry as your Bishop
Hello everyone. I hope that you are all bearing up in this strange new world. Iâ€™ve certainly been inspired by the stories of creative engagement and pastoral care going on across our diocese
I was never brilliant at maths at school. I remember the experience of maths lessons where the teacher tried to explain new concepts to the class.I recognised the individual words, but put together in a sentence, they made no sense to me at all.
This time of isolation makes communication very difficult.We can talk at a distance and connect through social media in many ways, but itâ€™s no substitute for a face to face conversation.Iâ€™m conscious of that as I share with you through these videos.
Hello everyone. I do hope you are bearing up two weeks in to our restrictions. Its hard for everyone, but Iâ€™m constantly encouraged by the creativity and sheer ingenuity people are exercising to continue connecting and caring for one another.
Some years ago, I attended the funeral of a very gifted young man who died all too young of a very nasty but short illness. His family had a vibrant Christian faith and the funeral was a great celebration of resurrection hope in a packed church.
