Spring of Hope  

On Sunday 11th August, Nicola Sanders, Manager of the Spring of Hope, will be coming to talk to us during the Sunday Mass, about the Spring of Hope, and how it helps victims of domestic abuse.

   

This is part of our initiative to attain the Silver Award in the RiseUp against domestic abuse campaign being run by Mothers' Union.  The church, working with MU, have already achieved the Bronze award:  thank you to those who kindly donated gifts earlier this year of toiletries, hairbrushes and umbrellas which we collected for the refuge.  This, together with prayers and displaying leaflets helped us gain the Bronze Award.  

 If you are able to help with any further donations before Nicola comes on 11th August, the refuge are currently looking for the following items :  Underwear, Pyjamas, Toiletries, Tinned food, cereals, long life milk.

 

Horfield Young People’s Club

We recently enjoyed a visit from Jasper, founder of “Help Bristols’ Homeless” and his assistant Kerry, and now intend using our talents to raise funds for “H.B.H” and other worthy causes. We would love it if there were any friends who might like to sponsor or support a Club child in this exciting venture – a key part of our FIFTIETH YEAR OUTREACH!  Please see one of the Youth Leaders (listed in Children’s Chapel) if you would like to help us help those in need.
