Digital resources to help churches connect 

New and existing digital resources are being made available to churches across Norwich and Norfolk to help them reach people in need and communicate more effectively online.

The Norwich City Council-run Lumi (pictured above) project team is working hard during the Covid-19 outbreak to collate the latest information on support and services available to help Norwich residents.
 
It lists a growing range of support available for residents needing help, alongside opportunities for residents wanting to help  and will be updated on a regular basis.
 
A whole range of basic advice & guidance is also available in the coronavirus resource area from help for individuals and keeping safe to community groups, employees and businesses.“

A brand-new Christian platform, YourNeighbour.org, has been created by the Good Faith Foundation and is being supported by a number of church groups.
 
The project has been set up to get support to those who need it most during the coronavirus pandemic and so far 40 different denominations are represented.
 
The message of the campaign is that, despite churches across the country being closed, members are relocating outside of church walls to serve.
The website contains a whole host of information for church leaders and for churches and communities such as: tips on working with volunteers; daily thought for the day; ten ways to keep yourself emotionally healthy; and opportunities to bless key workers.
 
It also included a helpline at 0300 323 9952.
