Key Events in the Benefice

from our vicar, Reverend Sue Giles

Although our church buildings are closed at the moment we warmly invite you to worship with us, or study or pray with us on-line.  We now have Bible study groups, Play and Praise for toddlers which is a fortnightly gathering, prayer groups, a coffee morning to chat every Thursday morning, all on-line. For security and safeguarding reasons we are not able to publish the links but if you would like to join us please contact Rev. Sue suethevic@btinternet.com and we can help you get connected.

Thy Kingdom come

Thy Kingdom Come is an annual invitation to prayer called by the Archbishops of Canterbury and York. The season of prayer begins on Ascension Day which was Thursday 21st May. It lasts for eleven days and culminates on Pentecost Sunday. The focus is specific prayer in churches, households and as individuals for friends, families, communities and countries to come to know the saving love of God in Jesus Christ, and for ourselves that, empowered by God’s Spirit, we would grow in confidence to show and tell of God’s love.

Do join us for our serices for Thy Kingdom Come 24th May and Penetcost 31st May.

Other continuing activities

The work of our school governors also continues, supporting the amazing staff who have kept Church of England Primary school provision open in Swaffham Bulbeck and Swaffham Prior for vulnerable children and the children of keyworkers. This has been a shared provision throughout lockdown and including school holidays and we are very grateful to all the staff for their hardwork and commitment to their children and families. There is now lots to be done as the schools prepare to welcome some children back to school for the final half term.

The benefice volunteers are still doing our collections for the food bank in Newmarket. As our buildings are closed at present the collection points have had to move. Donations can now be left at the Red Lion shop in Swaffham Prior or the Village Stores in Bottisham and in Orchard Road in Quy. The food bank are very grateful for any help as there is great demand for support in the current situation so thank you to all who have supported the food bank over the past weeks and thanks to our collection point hosts.

“Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength . . . Love your neighbour as yourself. There is no commandment greater than these.”

We have letters about the ways in which the Church is reacting to the current situation from the Bishop of Huntingdon here and the Archbishops of Canterbury and York here.

We know that these are worrying times for many of you and the Bottisham Medical Practice have produced a leaflet that you can find here, about mental health resources that you can access from home.

Safeguarding

The care and protection of children, young people and adults involved in Church activities is the responsibility of everyone who participates in the life of the church. All of our PCCs have adopted the ‘Promoting a Safer Church; safeguarding policy statement’ as our stated policy.

If you are concerned

That someone you know is at risk of, or is being abused, or presents a risk to others, please seek advice from a safeguarding Adviser or if necessary report the matter to the local Authority, Social care services or the Police without delay on 101. If it’s an emergency call 999.

Our Safeguarding officers are: Brenda Wilson 01638 743937, Carol Kitson 01223 811673 and Peter Goldsmith 01223 812525
