Food Bank Update
Continued thanks to everyone for the on-going support and most valued contributions.
The Beeches warehouse has now been closed and moved to the Cirencester Baptist Church, which is a big and new building
that has lots of underground storage for the goods waiting for distribution.
If anyone is interested in popping by to see the volunteers at work, they will be pleasantly surprised at the huge area which neatly and
methodically stores and prepares prior to going to Ashcroft Church for distribution. Wednesday mornings between 10am -12pm is a good time to
catch them at work, and as it's almost opposite Wickes - any D.I.Y. stuff can be bought at the same time!!
C.F.B. knows St.Mary's well now, and greatly values what you all do.
Charity of the Month:
Embrace the Middle East
Embrace supports transformational projects in the Middle East which help vulnerable and marginalised people to achieve their
potential. They work through the historic Christian communities of the region, who for two thousand years have been 'salt and light'
to the people they serve. By working with and empowering local Christian communities, Embrace seeks to help disadvantaged people in
the fields of education, community development and healthcare.
Their vision: Lives and communities in the Middle East transformed by the compassion of Christ.
Their mission: To partner with Middle East Christians as they bring healing and hope to all who face poverty and injustice.
Now more than ever, Christians in the Middle East suffer persecution, hardship and exclusion. This month we seek to support them through
the work of Embrace the Middle East, both financially and in prayer.
