The smart phone app Soultime is being promoted by The Archbishop of Canterbury  The Most Revd Justine Welby. It provides daily guided Christian mediation, a great way to build personal resilience and hope at this time. It has its own Facebook page, so you can check it out before you download: soultime@soultimeapp


One area of growing interest is how we do shared experiences whilst not being together. One idea is to agree with friends a show you will watch on the same day, or even at the same time. Then talk about it after or if you watch at the same time message each other through the show…. Your own version of Gogglebox as you as its stars.


We are Luton is a team of organisations who have come together to support the children, young people and families of Luton in times of crisis. This is a great central hub website to know what support there is locally.


SBC is running a  Quiz via Zoom every Friday starting at 8pm.

Email Jez Young at  Community@stopsley.net to book your place and receive your entry code.

It’s a whole lot of fun!


You will be aware that the BBC has ramped up its educational resources over the last few weeks. But have you considered using these for your own education. Learning a new skill, developing your own knowledge can be a great way to connect with others and you could come out of this time smarter than you went into it. Check out the BBC how to learn a new language, or  use facebook learn to dance with Anton Du Beke at 11am each day or watch the video after the live broadcast.

And I can’t finish without reminding you that local volunteering is one great way to build community and support your communities. NHS England has a range of roles but also Luton people are supported by a number of organisations and charities that you could get involved in. Check out Luton Volunteering page.
