24th March 2019

On Tuesday it was the Diocesan Headteachers/governors conference organised for church schools. The conference had a specific focus looking at the effect poverty has on pupils as well an update on the new RE curriculum & Ofsted/ SIAMS frameworks. ON Wednesday, I welcomed the Verger’s Guild to St Faith’s, with a potted history of St Faith’s. Thanks to Paul Paynton who arranged this.

I don’t know about you, but I have been moved by the devastation of Cyclone IDAI and especially the images that show the intense flooding and suffering of the people of Mozambique. The Disasters Emergency Committee is an organisation that only comes together at times of disaster bringing together 14 leading UK charities & local agencies, has launched an appeal to help victims in Mozambique, Malawi & Zimbabwe. They strive to provide effective & swift humanitarian assistance; alongside medication, shelter, & food is urgently needed.

Next week there will be a collection in aid of the appeal.

Please pray for them this week, God bless, Revd Julie
