Church services return post-lockdown at Armley care home

Residents at Paisley Lodge Care Home in Armley recently took part in their first church service since the start of COVID-19.

Singing hymns, praying and listening to readings from the Bible were just some of the activities that took place when the local community vicar, the Reverend Phil Arnold, from Christ Church in Armley, performed the ceremony.

At the end of the service, residents told staff that they still pray before going to bed every night, despite the church being closed during the Coronavirus, and hearing words from the Bible gave them hope again.

Caroline Gibson, Acting Deputy Home Manager, said it was very important to provide residents with the ability to practice their individual religious beliefs. She added:

“It was wonderful to see our residents signing the hymns, reciting the prayers and saying the lord’s prayer loud and proud once again.

“There was a feeling of pure righteousness and abundance in our home, which felt very calming and spiritual. We really enjoyed coming together for this very special moment and cannot wait for the next service. It was such a lovely atmosphere and a magical day.”

Paisley Lodge offers specialist dementia, residential and short-term respite care.
