Christ Church launches 'Keeping in Touch' Scheme

At Christ Church we are remaining positive and are excited to launch our new ‘Keeping in Touch’ (KIT) scheme.

What is KIT? It might just be a regular phone call to check in on how people are. It could be offering help with practical things like shopping, IT support or other needs.

We are a community of friends who are intent on finding hope in these difficult times by connecting with and supporting each other.

Loneliness can be disabling, and our clergy team can also offer prayer, pastoral support or just a listening ear.

Our parish contact list has more than 80 members – some of whom have asked for support and some who want to help others. The KIT scheme builds on this list to create a picture of those in our community who need the support of their neighbours and friends.

Don’t suffer in silence, please get in touch with us. If you know of someone who would benefit from this service, then, with their permission, we would also like you to refer them to us. They can phone us on 01793 522832 between 9am-1pm Monday-Friday or use the link below to join the KIT scheme.

Initially we are focusing on people in our Old Town, Swindon Parish/community, however we will consider how we might support others further afield if we have enough volunteers.

If you would like to offer support to others, click the link below.

We will be in touch. https://bit.ly/KITscheme
