Helena Power our Rockwell Green School, Children and Families Chaplain

During lockdown and again in the autumn term it was not possible to go into the schools for a long time, so I kept in touch by sending greetings to staff, pupils and parents through the schools’ communication networks and offering to meet individuals outdoors. This has resulted in closer relationships with some families and the opportunity to walk alongside people through bereavement and illness. In the summer holidays I could go on walkabout locally and help with deliveries of food, and it was a blessing to be able to meet a family every week in the park to share Bible stories and have fun. It does seem true that when one door closes, another usually opens.” Helena
