A church in Locking Parklands has set up a group to help vulnerable people during the coronavirus crisis.

Parklands Community Church, in Locking Moor Road, is asking for people who need help with food shopping, walking the dog or a chat over the phone or prayer, to get in touch.

The group has been set up as a result of the uncertainty caused by the virus.

The church has also announced all gatherings at the church are cancelled until further notice.

This includes Sunday mass, Pop-up Café and mid-week gatherings.

A spokesman for the church said: “There’s no doubt that the next few months are going to be difficult.

“As we face uncertainty as a nation, Parklands Community Church wants to play our part in caring for the local community.”
