Who’d think that just chatting to people is a gift and a real asset to the church! Well Jill Bareham finds she can talk to anyone about anything and even more important than that, she can listen, and keep all those private remarks to herself. Especially in these difficult times since the early in the Covid pandemic, and the forced separation of older folk from their relatives, her church, St. Helen’s in Wheathamstead, gives her work their blessing. Do you call just talking to people you may not know, a calling? Well, St. Helen’s certainly recognises this in Jill, and to her, it is a blessing and a joy to be able to serve God in this way.
