SAFEGUARDING

Keeping Everyone Safe -
Don’t Do Nothing!

St Mary and St Nicolas has been at the heart of Spalding life for over 700 years. The building and its community have survived through flood, plague, famine and war.

The building is open every day and provides a sanctuary for reflection and prayer.

Visitors’ Information Page

We serve our community in many ways, living as disciples of Christ and sharing God’s love as Jesus taught us to do.

KEEPING CONTACT

My mother lived on her own for many years and often said how lonely she was. She knew a lot of people, but she felt that she could not make the first approach to anyone else; she wanted them to get in touch with her. She sometimes said, “I haven’t spoken to anyone all day.” I was never able to persuade her that she could pick up the phone and call someone else and maybe help them to feel less lonely as well as herself.


Please don’t be like that. Use every means that you can of reaching out to other people at this time. There are so many different ways of contacting others and it will mean so much to someone else, if you make the first move.



ENCOURAGE ONE ANOTHER

This is what I have been telling myself in recent days, “You are going to expected to be strong for lots of other people in the weeks and months to come, don’t forget to take care of yourself. Do what you can, but don’t be unrealistic about what you can do to make things better for other people. Keep praying and trusting in God, remember that others are praying for you. Keep yourself safe, and those you love close.”


I don’t know exactly what you need to hear at the moment, but please think about what will help you to keep calm and carry on.


Let’s keep praying for one another, for what is happening locally, in other parts of this country and around the world. Let’s pray that the kindness, generosity and self-sacrifice that are already becoming evident will grow and continue long after this crisis is behind us.
