COMMUNITY NEWS with Liz Waterson

Women’s World Day of Prayer 2015womensworlddayofprayer
Many thanks to everyone who joined us and contributed to the beautiful Women’s World Day of Prayer service written by the Women of the Bahamas.  The personal ‘Footstep Response’ of each member of the congregation can be found in St John’s Church, Bridgetown and we were once again very grateful to the Mayor, Deputy and their spouses for attending and taking part.
The collection came to £200, a large portion of which was Gift Aided and is yet to be added to final total.
Join us again in 2016 to share in a service written by the Women of Cuba.

Joan Caskey asks:
“Please can we have contributions towards the cost of the lilies to decorate St Mary’s Church at Easter? It would be lovely if we could put on a good display as usual.”

Jars of ChangeJARS OF CHANGE – Lent Appeal 2015
Our churches will once again be supporting the campaign to bring clean, safe water to communities around the world. Did you know that a 20 litre container of water weighs 20 kilos? WaterAid projects make long walks for water a thing of the past, allowing children time to attend school and gain a life-changing eduction. Boreholes and taps bring life-saving water, ensuring proper sanitation and preventing diarrhoea and other water-related diseases. You too can support Jars of Change this Lent by donating what you save from giving up a luxury to help bring water to villages in Africa, Southern Asia and Central America.
