News Sheet: 21st February 2021

Prayer


We are holding short prayer sessions — of 20 to 30 minutes — on Thursday mornings during Lent. Please see the News Sheet for more details. To join in, please email Liz Spain at localpastor@hwmc.org.uk for the link to the meeting.


We also invite you to join with others in our congregation to pray together through Lent, knowing that we can feel connected to each other by knowing that others will be praying with us. Each week we shall reflect and pray over the lectionary passage for the week, following the same format: a Bible reading, a question(s), a prayer and an action. A guide will be sent around by email each week, and can also be found here on the website from the Saturday before.

Help Wanted!

  • The Aroma Management Group is looking for a volunteer to become Chair of the group from the start of April.

  • The Outlook team are looking for a volunteer to take on the role of Minute Secretary to prepare the agenda for, and take minutes at, two meetings a year.

Interested in either role? You can find more details in the News Sheet.

Prayer Walk, Climate Change and a Photo Gallery


The Show the Love campaign encourages people to make and wear, or display Green Hearts to spark conversations about climate change.


We are displaying Green Hearts in the church porch and Aroma windows from 12th February, in time for Valentine’s Day.


Check the News Sheet for more details, and also the blog post about our new Environmental Prayer Walk for February inviting you to take some photos showing the beauty and wonder of God’s creation to send in to us, so we can make a gallery.

Refugee Action York

We are delighted to be hosting a new exhibition of artwork produced by refugees and asylum seekers temporarily based in York. You can see the artwork in our new Art Exhibition from RAY, and also in a window at Aroma.


Many of the men originally accommodated in York have been transferred elsewhere. So Refugee Action York (RAY) are now welcoming new asylum seekers and would be very grateful to receive donations of suitable clothing, rucksacks, suitcases etc. Please see the News Sheet for details of what RAY are asking for and how to donate.
