Christian Aid Week
Sincere thanks to everyone who contributed towards our fundraising efforts this year, which focused on maternal health in Sierra Leonne.
To everyone who delivered and collected envelopes, helped to run fundraising coffee mornings, plant stalls and Afternoon Teas, or stood valiantly in Morrisons, we are truly grateful.
The count will take place shortly, and once we know how much money had been raised, the news will be broadcast here. Keep an eye open for it next week.
Latest update: The Morrisons Collection raised £381.56 last Thursday.
Just don't do it
7:30pm, Thursday/Friday 23/24th at Carriageworks Theatre, Leeds
This is the debut production of the Beside Ourselves Collective. It's a comedy about how the church speaks to teenage girls and young women about their sexuality. For more information click on the flyer on the right, or on the Carriageworks website. There is also a video which explains a bit more about the project and what they're hoping to achieve.
Please note that the performances have an age recommendation of 14+.
Swimming the Channel for St Gemma's
Susie Hughes, a member of St James' Church, is doing a sponsored virtual swim of the channel: all 21 miles of it, in aid of St Gemma's Hospice. (Don't worry, she's doing it in stages at the Leisure Centre, and is already well on the way to her target.) Susie herself suffered from breast cancer three years ago.
If you would like to sponsor her, and help provide hospice care for others who are suffering, please complete the sponsorship form you can find in the St Gemma's shop or in St James Church.
Churches Together Community Prayers
9.15am, Wednesday, June 5 in the Quiet Room at Wetherby Methodist Church, Bank Street
These monthly meetings take place on the first Wednesday of every month.
This is a great opportunity to meet with other Christians from around the town to pray for our community, and to enjoy a coffee and fellowship afterwards in the coffee lounge, although that's not obligatory, of course.
