Wetherby, Linton & Collingham
Launch of the Leeds Church Institute's
6.30pm, Tuesday 22 October at Claire Chapel, Emmanuel Centre, Leeds University
Leeds Church Institute is offering twin bursaries of £5,000 over a six-month period to a collaborative pairing of a theologian and a visual artist. The period of the bursary will enable a time for dialogue, creation and reflection leading to a presentation of visual arts and written theology that can be shared widely.
The 2020 Bursary Scheme will be launched at the Claire Chapel, and there will be an art installation to view, and a presentation on art and faith communities.
The theme of the bursary is faith, spirituality and city life in Leeds. A more specific focus, such as responding to climate change or enhancing inclusion, can be agreed as part of the planning process.
Submissions of interest should be submitted to LCI after this event. Interest is welcome from artists and theologians with an established practice, at any stage of their career and who are in sympathy with the aims and ethos of Leeds Church Institute.
For more information, including a video about the dialogue between art and theology, visit www.LCIleeds.org/2020bursary.
Saying Goodbye service
4.00pm, Sunday, October 27 at Bradford Cathedral
Saying Goodbye, which is part of the Mariposa Trust, are organising another baby loss support remembrance and support service at Bradford Cathedral.
The Mariposa Trust is one of the UK’s leading charities, with its core objective being to support people who have lost babies at any stage of pregnancy, at birth, or in infancy. With 1 in 4 women suffering miscarriage and baby loss, it's likely that most of us will know someone who has lost a baby or infant.
Please publicise this service as much as you are able.
Churches Together Community Prayers
9.15am, Wednesday, November 6 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.
Transport for Victims of Modern Slavery
It is estimated that between 10,000 and 13,000 people are enslaved within the UK at any one time. They have been tricked, trapped and traded as if they were commodities: exploited and abused.
The Salvation Army provides support services for victims on adult trafficking (modern slavery) in England and Wales. Part of this includes providing transport to places of safety for victims, which is carried out by volunteer drivers and chaperones.
There is a constant need for additional volunteers, who are provided with support and online training, and are reimbursed expenses. If you would like to explore more about what is involved in helping these very vulnerable people, please read the leaflet on the right, or go to salvationarmy.org.uk/human-trafficking.
