Charity of the Month:
Mission to Seafarers

Mission to Seafarers

The Mission to Seafarers supports seafarers in over 261 ports in 71 countries around the world through its network of chaplains and volunteers. They stand ready to offer a warm Christian welcome, practical and financial support, advocacy services, access to legal advice and family liaison. The work of a seafarer is one of the most difficult, dangerous and challenging jobs in the world today - rough, lonely and hazardous. The Mission seeks to support seafarers as they face the daily challenges of their work.

Love Fairford: 14 Sep to 1 Oct

Love Fairford

Love Fairford is a two-week ecumenical outreach project in our community, with Christians of all churches and backgrounds: Anglicans, Roman Catholics, Methodists, Congregationalists and the two community churches; coming together to witness the power and vitality of our Christian faith community. The aim is to show the love of Christ for our community and everyone within it, and to reach out to invite and welcome people to experience our worship and faith.

There will be events of worship; including a healing service, a hog roast harvest celebration & finale with a ‘big sing’ in a marquee with a band and Bishop Rachel as the speaker.

There are all kinds of other events planned too, including women’s pampering & craft evenings with speakers, a men’s breakfast with a padre from NATO’s rapid response team, events for primary aged & teenagers, plus afternoon tea for the seniors.

Love Fairford seeks funding to support these events: paying for a marquee, generator, publicity and printing.

As Fairford’s Church of England community, we would like to support this project generously and enthusiastically. Please let Rev’d Caroline know if you would like to be involved with the planning team, and do give generously!
