The Spiritual Agenda in Responding to COVID-19

Friday, 24th April 2020
5:30pm - 7:00pm

The National Spirituality and Mental Health Forum are running a webinar this Friday 24th April on ‘The Importance of the Spiritual Agenda in Responding to the Covid-19 Pandemic’.

Coronavirus has changed our lives in an unprecedented way. We are all affected by the pandemic in various ways from losing a loved one, becoming unwell with the virus, working from home, staying home or working on the frontline.

It is evident that there is much talk currently of maintaining our mental health but perhaps less of ensuring that our spiritual needs are met. In normal times our spiritual needs are often met by meetings or collective acts of fellowship and worship and we can be vulnerable when these sources are just turned off. For those working on the frontline and for those who are grieving, there may be an increased need for spiritual support. This is highly relevant to those who provide spiritual support to the NHS (staff and/or patients), staff in the care sector’ and the local community.

Please join them for a talk with Dr. Peter Rookes, who will be discussing spiritual accompaniment for staff working on the front line of the pandemic and networking with the NHS and social care to ensure that spirituality and spiritual needs are addressed in the current pandemic. There will also be a section for questions and discussion.
