 Church Homeless Trust changes its name

Homelessness charity Church Housing Trust recently changed its name to Church Homeless Trust.

Church Homeless Trust's new name emphasises its focus on homeless individuals and the specific support they need to rebuild their lives.

People who have experienced homeless also need more than a roof over their head; without the skills and sense of community needed to sustain a new tenancy, they may end up back on the streets. The Trust concentrates on building an individual’s strengths and interests, and meeting their needs with small, personal grants.

To find out more about the work of the Trust see the link below.

 The Art of Spiritual Direction Course - Book Now

Starting in January 2019, (rescheduled from September 2018) here is an opportunity to learn this gentle art of listening, noticing, deepening, celebrating and accompanying another on their spiritual journey. Being a prayer guide and spiritual companion is a great investment in growing a passionate spirituality in our churches, communities, and nation.

Do others naturally come to you to share their hopes and fears about their faith? From your own experience of receiving spiritual direction, do you sense an invitation to come alongside others?

For more information please see the attached flyer.

 Remembrance 100

On Sunday, 4 August 1918, the fourth anniversary of the declaration of war, King George V and Queen Mary joined members of the House of Commons and the House of Lords for a special service at the Church of Saint Margaret, Westminster. The King had asked that 4 August 1918 should be observed as a National Day of Prayer: 100 days later the war ended.

On 4 August 2018 churches across the country, across the spectrum of denominations, start 100 days of prayer, peace and reconciliation. This is being called Remembrance 100.

 Petty Theft and Damage at Ladbroke Church

Ladbroke Church has suffered a string of attempts to get into their donation box set into the wall of the church near the main door. It was a very robust box so the early attempts just burred the locks though later ones meant it couldn't be unlocked with the keys. On subsequent visits the perpetrator removed the hinge at the bottom and tried to lever the box out, damaging the nearby wall and has even used an angle grinder.

The Church are concerned with what he what might see as his next challenge and images from CCTV footage have been passed to the police. If other churches have had similar problems please email Jackie West using the link.
