Letter from Pamela Blackshaw about The Haven
To: Leaders & Representatives of Churches Together Oswestry District.
The Haven is affiliated to Churches Together, so I am letting you know that I am giving up leading The Haven at the end of this year. This has led to a very
difficult decision. We plan to close The Haven on Wednesday December 30 th
2020. With all the effects of Covid 19 and no leader to take over as Alan and
Glenn are unable to due to other commitments. Because of Lockdown things
changed, fewer people coming into the Market...and most people are reluctant to stop and talk, also the cost of rent each week.
With praying and thinking it all through.....and sharing it with others, I decided that under the circumstances we would have to finish in December.
The Haven has been at Oswestry Market since 2006. So it is with great sadness that there will no longer be any Christian presence and witness there each week.
It has been a privilege and joy for us to listen, talk and pray with and for people.
Thank you for all your prayers for me and the team over the last two and a half years....without them I would not have been able to carry on.
