LATCHFORD Baptist Church has been transformed by a creative window display giving thanks to all key workers.

When a majority of the church congregation had to socially isolate, only a few members were able to provide practical help in the community.

Instead, Latchford Baptist Church members decided to find a more creative way to lift residents’ spirits.

Revd Carolyn Urwin suggested using the church’s large entrance window to give a huge thank you to all the key workers across Warrington.

One of their deacons, Andrew Brooker, together with his daughter Leah, designed the window, as well as hand-painting and mounting the artwork.

Revd Urwin explained: “Their aim was to include as many key workers as possible – they eventually ran out of window space!

“People from the community have been stopping to have their photo outside the window and telling their friends to walk past on their permitted walk to have a look.”

The church community has also set up a prayer line through its website and a phone answering service.

Revd Urwin said: “People can get in contact to ask the church to pray for them or people for whom they are concerned.

“The call details are naturally treated confidentially in order to protect the privacy of those involved.

“One of our noticeboards contains a prayer of blessing that people can pray as they read it, assuring them of God’s presence with them in these difficult times.”
