Shropshire and Marches Circuit Lay Pastor Sharon O'Connell heard of a church group who, unable to meet in their building during lockdown, developed a walking ministry. As they walked around their local community every Sunday, part of their worship included stopping for prayers and reading thoughts which, written on laminated sheets were then hung on trees for people to read and enjoy.

Inspired, Sharon who has pastoral oversight of our Shobdon, Kingsland, Leintwardine, Lingen and Tenbury Wells churches soon adopted a similar idea, attaching labels to the church railings. "As people are out on their daily exercise, they can stop and read the label and perhaps focus on the good things around them that God has provided" Sharon said. She regularly checks and adds different labels to the railings and is pleased that they are withstanding the weather and have escaped vandalism. "Last week I went back out and added to them. People are reading them, and I'm really impressed with that."
