St George Annual Charity

The PCC decided that we will be supporting Embrace the Middle East as our charity this year. This decision was taken before the present troubles but seems very apt in the light of all that is going on. One of our Church works for this charity and brings insight into their work. An article will be in this month’s magazine. Right now an emergency appeal is being launched. More information to follow. Please pray for them.

Child Contact Centre needs volunteers.
The people who work with the Contact Centre are VOLUNTEERS, they are people who have an interest in supporting families and children. We provide a safe and neutral environment to enable the child/ren to meet with their absent parent? 

Could you spare a Saturday afternoon once a month.

Please email coordinator@dursleyccc.org.uk  for further information, all enquiries are in confidence with no obligation to proceed.

Prison Volunteers
Our Prison Visitors volunteer is looking for more members for her team. This is not specifically a Christian role - just befriending and keeping a contact. Obviously, there will be security/DBS checks on anyone who wants to take it further.
Prison Visitors are supported by the chaplaincy staff. We have regular meetings where different members of the staff talk on issues from the older prisoner population to peer mentoring and there is a chance to discuss experiences and questions with other prison visitors.
If anyone is interested, they should email either: jonquil.richards@justice.gov.uk or  anthony.williams@justice.gov.uk


God bless

Rev'd Fiona, Sophia, Andrew, Ken and the Team
