Project Gambia Shoebox Appeal

Once again this year we are collecting shoeboxes to send with Project Gambia for Christmas.  The boxes will be collected on Sunday 14th October as part of our Harvest Festival, when we will welcome Bev Hodt, Project Gambia Leader, to speak about their work. There are a number of empty shoeboxes in church for any who’d like one - first come, first served!

 

Harvest Festival

Our harvest festival will take place on Sunday 14th October. As in previous years we will be collecting non-perishable items to be given to local charities, including the Solace Community for the homeless, where Jim works. In addition this year we will be welcoming Bev Hodt from Project Gambia to speak at the service that day, and we will be collecting and blessing the shoeboxes as they then make their way to Gambia for Christmas.

 

Walk Where Jesus Walked

In February 2020 Julia and Pal will be leading a trip to the Holy Land - 9 days based in Galilee, Jerusalem and Bethlehem. To find out more about this amazing opportunity, please come to an Introductory Evening on Thursday 4th October at 7.30pm. This will be a chance to ind out all the details, whet your appetite, and ask questions. Coming to this initial meeting does not commit you!

 

Pathways to Ministry

Pathways to Ministry is for anyone interested in lay or ordained ministry and provides time and space to reflect on the gifts and calling of each person. Starting in early autumn at The Church at Perton, it is made up of four Saturdays and 15 evenings over the year, ending in June, and explores aspects of theology, Biblical understanding, the practice of ministry and the future of the church. For an application form, or more information, contact Helen Sheven, Training Co-ordinator:  helen.sheven@lichfield.anglican.org 

 

Wolverhampton Church Shelter

This great support for homeless people in Wolverhampton had to close its doors over the summer due to a lack of volunteers. Since the shelter re-opened last December, it has looked after over 160 homeless people. We hope to welcome a speaker from the Shelter to church,  but that won’t be for a few months. In the meantime, if you are interested in finding out about volunteering, please contact: churchsheltervolunteers@gmail.com and check out the website: https://www.wolveschurchshelter.org 

 

Peace Party

Saturday 10th November, 2.30-4.30pm. As part of the village’s commemorations of the the centenary of the end of the First World War, please join us for a traditional street party with refreshments and wartime music.

 

Christmas with a Difference!

Can you make some room for an international student to learn what true British Festive hospitality can mean? Should you like to add that international element to your Christmas, learning another country’s traditions and enjoying the connection and friendship that such sharing brings? HOST UK arranges for international students to enjoy brief home stays with UK hosts, one day, a weekend or, over the festive period, a three-day visit. We need more hosts so that a smile such as Marine’s can spread across many more faces… and across our fragile world. If you should like to know more, please go to our website: www.hostuk.org or leave a message on http://visits.hostuk.org/Public/ApplyToBecomeAHost
