An Ecumenical week of prayer for prisoners, their families, prison staff, victims of crimes etc.
Our parish supports Nepacs a local Prison Charity for prisoners and their families. As well as our collection of toiletries and food packs for women released from Low Newton, this year we also appeal for craft materials for children attending Friday Family Visits at Low Newton. Activities are provided by Nepacs staff and volunteers to make visits as happy and relaxed as possible. Supporting family contact helps during difficult times and is important in reducing the risk of reoffending.
There will be 2 collections on Sunday 8th and Sunday 15th October. Please put donations in the labelled boxes which will be in the narthex from Sunday 1st October. Your generosity will be very gratefully received.
