Synod Retreat

 

The dates are Tuesday 10th to Thursday 12th March. We start with lunch on the Tuesday, and end after Communion and before lunch on the Thursday.

The place is the lovely peaceful house of Shepherds Dene, near Riding Mill.

Our leader is to be Rt Rev John Pritchard, retired Bishop of Oxford, formerly Bishop of Jarrow. His title is: 'Let him easter in us': letting resurrection loose in our lives. John says: “The quote is from Gerard Manley Hopkins and I love the idea of easter being a verb. We would explore resurrection through the biblical accounts, stories, poetry, art and music”.

The Retreat is open to all in Northern Synod – ordained or lay, active or retired.

The cost of the Retreat is £160 per person – most of you will be able

Morpeth and Mitford Churches Together

 

Asylum Seekers Support Group

West End Refugee Service

The WERS website is currently saying that they are still unable to accept any donations of clothing etc for their clothing store, as all their storage areas are full.

Justice and Peace Refugee Project

I have also received an email from the Justice and Peace Project to tell me that they have received some very generous donations of bedding recently.  Usually they have a huge demand for this but the demand has more or less dried up this year, probably because of the very mild winter.  Consequently, they have a huge glut of bedding and can't take any more at the moment.  So they want people to hang fire on bedding donations for the time being. 

I am sure both of these Projects will require more stocks before long.  I will let you know when their stores are open again for donations.  Meanwhile please keep donations of food and toiletries coming.

Christians Against Poverty [CAP] Job Club

Over the past year, we at Doxford Place Methodist Church, have been exploring the possibility of partnering with Christians Against Poverty to run a Job Club.

 Job Clubs are part of the CAP network, running alongside their Debt Advice Service to help those who are unemployed get back into work and out of debt and poverty.

The opening of The Hope Centre in Cramlington Town Centre, by St Nicholas’ Church provided further impetus to this idea, and matters are now coming to fruition.

We are launching the service on Tuesday 25th February 2020 (Shrove Tuesday) at 1.00 pm, and publicity is now being circulated.

 Gordon Summers (Coach) and Eric Brook (Manager) spent a very hectic two days at CAP headquarters in Bradford in November training for our roles in the Club.

 We are both excited about this project and hope that others can catch the vision. Our message is “Watch this Space!”

The service will be based at The Hope Centre in Forum Way, Cramlington and will be part of the centre’s mission of showing the love of Jesus to the community. If you know of someone who might benefit, please pass the message on, and get in touch with us.

Contact phone numbers are :-

Eric : 07387 874804        Gordon : 07494 991783

 Hopefully the service will grow and we will need more volunteers to work alongside us. Volunteers must be willing to be trained by CAP, at their Headquarters in Bradford- requiring an overnight stay.

Most of all, keep us in your prayers.
