Dear Friends of St Botolph-without-Bishopsgate, may I take the opportunity to offer you all a very happy Christmas. It has been a difficult year for everyone throughout the world. In our prayers daily we hold before God all those affected by the Coronavirus pandemic. For all those who are sick, those recovering, those who will never fully recover, and all who have died. We pray too for all those who have become isolated and lonely, those with associated mental health issues
