Giving Money – it is lovely that we are a very generous church.  Please could we ask that people don’t give money to people who have come to church for help due to hardship.  We do help these people regularly, but giving money often puts other temptations in their way so it isn’t always the best thing.  If you’re unsure please speak to Clare (and give her the money if need be!!)

Fountain’s Church are delighted to be hosting ‘Riding Lights – My Place’ on Wednesday 25th May on behalf of Bradford Churches. There is no charge for the tickets but we will be asking people to donate if they are able (usual cost is £10 per ticket).

WHAT’S THE STORY OF MY PLACE?

Both entertaining and thought-provoking, My Place follows the stories of four children in care. An individual child, a pair of siblings and an unaccompanied child refugee. They have different backgrounds and journeys, brought to life through a range of colourful story-telling techniques, including song and spoken word. Each story highlights the need for all vulnerable children to have a safe, stable and loving home where they can thrive.

WHO ARE HOME FOR GOOD?

Home for Good is a charity that exists to find a home for every child who needs one. We hope to inspire and equip individuals and families to open their homes and hearts to children and teenagers through fostering, adoption and supported lodgings. We also resource churches to be a welcoming and supportive community for all families who care for vulnerable children and advocate on their behalf at all levels of government. Home for Good is thrilled to have this opportunity to join with Riding Lights in presenting My Place.
