I hope that this finds you well and that you have enjoyed the summer, despite the unpredictable weather! As we enter the autumn season it’s a good time to reflect on the personal season that we find ourselves in and on finding peace, health and balance in our own lives.
With regards to the life of the Parish Nursing project the past 6 months have seen lots of exciting new developments taking shape and increased momentum.
Of course, none of this would be possible without your tireless support through prayer, funding and encouragement so we cannot thank you enough!!
The stall within The Moor Market
Our market stall continues to be a rich place of encounter with the people of Sheffield including the hardworking stall holders and staff who continue to offer a warm and supportive welcome including us as part of their community.
Since the beginning of April we have seen 359 clients including 98 new clients, both men and women, customers and stall holders and those on the streets. The vast majority of those under our care do not attend church and come from a variety of faith backgrounds reinforcing the value of our presence in the market as it enables us to extend our outreach to the wider population.
In addition to providing health checks, advice, a listening ear and signposting, we can provide health and wellbeing education. This work is often carried out in collaboration with other local health organisations such as Macmillan, Diabetes UK and Healthwatch Sheffield.
Over the Summer we had fun running children’s events during the holidays sharing engaging activities to encourage healthy bodies, healthy minds and vibrant spirits!
