Fish n Chips & Win Saha’s Poetry Evening

On Saturday 2nd February at 6pm we are going to enjoy fish and chips together at a cost of £5 - booking for this is essential! Please see Penny for tickets. Then at 7pm, as part of Wolverhampton Literary Festival, we are hosting a recital of wonderful Win Saha’s poetry. This part is free but donations will be collected for charity.  

 

,,,, Help!!!  Friends of Win Saha Poetry Evening

As you’ll have heard, as part of the Wolverhampton Literary Festival, we are hosting an evening celebrating wonderful Win’s poetry. Ranjan and Rev’d Julia are going to be arranging this in the next couple of weeks, choosing the poems and so on. As you know Win wrote literally thousands of poems, so we thought that perhaps one way of choosing is to ask people to let us know their favourite poem - or one of their favourite poems. There’s no guarantee that every poem everyone mentions can be used as we only have an hour(!), but it’d be really wonderful to hear what some of your favourites are. Please let Rev’d Julia know in the next week. Thank you for your help in this special evening.

 

Dementia Friendly Church Awareness Course:

We are hosting this 4 session course, open to all local churches, which will teach us a little about dementia and help us to assess how we’re doing, and what we could do better, as churches, to serve those with dementia and their carers. Wednesdays: 13 & 27 February; 13 & 27 March, 7.30pm.

 

Lent Course: ‘Lifting the Lid’:

This Bible study course is produced by the charity ‘Livability’, which connects people with their communities tackling social exclusion and the barriers that cause this in the lives of disabled and vulnerable people. Did you know that one in four of us will have a diagnosable mental health condition in our lifetime? ‘Lifting the Lid’ is a great resource, a six week Bible study course focused on faith and mental health, created to help church small groups use the Bible as a guide to emotional and mental wellbeing. People can be wary of sharing their experiences, and opening discussions can be challenging, but churches can play a key role in lifting the lid on mental health, by creating spaces that listen and welcome.

The course will be run at two times and people can swap between them if necessary:

Tuesdays at 7.30pm: 12th 19th & 26th March; 2nd, 9th & 16th April

Wednesdays at 10.30am: 13th, 20th & 27th March; 3rd, 10th & 17th April
