On 2nd June our Community Day at St Martin’s will have a particularly patriotic theme – please feel free to come along. On 5th June after church at St Paul’s we will stay for a picnic in the church grounds so please try and stay on after church that day.
We are making an art installation with a Jubilee feel together with Cecil Green Arts – it won’t be up before the Jubilee but we will be making it as part of the celebrations – look out for something large created by our community in each of our church buildings over the summer!
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.
