SUFFRAGAN BISHOP DAVID HAMID’S BLOG
We want to share with you our Suffragan Bishop’s blog entry for November 2, 2020. After the cancellation of his visit to Lanzarote due to travel restrictions, he dedicated his daily post to share the news from our Parish, our work and our plans for the future.

British Consulate Group welcomed to Chaplaincy Centre
The British Vice Consul for the province of Las Palmas – Jackie Stevenson, and Victoria Innes, a case worker for the Consulate, together with the Honorary British Consul, Sue Thain, were welcomed by the Chaplain – Fr Stan Evans and his wife Rosemary, together with the Secretary, Sunny Schwarz, to the Chaplaincy House and Centre on Friday 11th September.

The visit was arranged to share and network on the various ways in which the Consulate and Centre can work together to help meet the needs of those affected by Covid19 and their families which are under pressure.

Fr Stan stressed his emphasis on the Church being able to serve the local community and agreed to explore further ways in which the Centre can be used for that purpose.

Jackie Stevenson thanked the Chaplain for the support given over recent months for those who found themselves in hospital or stranded through lockdown. It was agreed that all work in partnership to further a ‘network’ of care, working closely at this demanding time.
