The Mothers' Union 'Bye Buy Childhood' campaign aims to empower families to challenge the commercialisation and sexualisation of childhood through positive action. As a result of their Bailey Review, all the major Regulators involved e.g. ASA, BBC Trust, Ofcom, PCC etc have now made themselves accessible through a single internet portal, http://www.parentport.org.uk and all businesses are being encouraged to create on their websites a single clear link for Complaints.
[img_assist|nid=409|title=|desc=|link=none|align=left|width=83|height=100]The work on raising the bells began earlier in the year when they were moved from their long-time resting place inside the church to John Taylor Bellfounders in Loughborough, for the necessary repair and preparation for rehanging. The planned date for raising them is the 22nd and 23rd June - some of you will wish to witness this sight, even if you have to do so from the other side of Castle St; St. Peter's churchyard will offer a good viewpoint.
This service is organised by Cambridge City Centre Churches Forum and all are welcome to attend. The speaker is Bishop Dr. Joe Aldred, Bishop in the Church of God of Prophecy, a member of Churches Together in Britain and Ireland.
Paul and Angela Gibbs are your guides for this third travel talk at St. Luke's.
We begin at 7.00 pm with supper and this will be followed by the talk. The menu will be available closer to the date. Soft drinks will be provided but please feel free to bring along your own alcoholic drink if you wish to. There will be a raffle.
Tickets will be on sale from mid-March at each of the churches or direct from Margaret Cooper.
Margaret Cooper will show us the Camino from St Jacques to Santiago de Compostela in Northern Spain, as travelled by coach. This is a sequel to the talk given by Philipa and Judith when they amused us by showing us behind the scenes along the route and in the hostels.
This is a relaxed, ecumenical service of thanksgiving for and remembrance of those we love but see no more. All who would like space and time to remember a loved one, in a peaceful, spiritual environment, are very welcome to the service and the afternoon tea that follows.
Even if you are not going through a recent bereavement, you are still very welcome to come along to remember, and through your presence support others who are grieving.
