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.
A new Open Bible discussion group will be meeting on alternate Thursdays, the first meeting being June 20th when we will begin discussing the book of Acts.
Following on from the Reflections on the Beatitudes which we studied in Lent, we are going to meet monthly on the last Tuesday of the month. T
We meet informally with a quiet time of reflection, a hymn to sing, some music to listen to, prayer, Bible reading and discussion as we consider our discipleship using phrases from the Lord’s Prayer.
Please do come along, enjoy some refreshment and fellowship.
EVERYONE is welcome
"Apophatic Tradition" will be the topic of our next meeting, open to all. It will be led by John Gatiss. For information on the venue or future discussions, please contact Richard Catchpole by email: email@example.com or phone:07736 070907.
The Group meets monthly, usually on the first Tuesday of the month. We welcome all Church at Castle members, and all who are interested in the month's topic. We discuss topics of religious or ethical significance as identified by members.
All are welcome at a service of Holy Communion.
Rev'd Dr Geoff Dumbreck is the speaker for this month's free lecture, at which all are welcome.
François-René de Chateaubriand was a French aristocrat, writer, diplomat and aspiring explorer. Fleeing the French Revolution, he made his way to London and East Anglia, bringing some Gallic charm to the small towns of Beccles and Bungay. Geoff Dumbreck will introduce you to the life of this remarkable character, who left his mark on theology, literature, politics, and - perhaps most famously - steak
Church at Castle will welcome all churches within the parish to join them in St Giles' garden for a Pentecost bring and share picnic. This will be an informal gathering of unity and a great opportunity to have fun together. We hope to share songs from the rich variety of church traditions in our neighbourhood as an informal entertainment, and there will be fun activities for all ages, and provision for just relaxing together. Drinks will be provided.
This walk is a C@C response to the 'Thy Kingdom Come' Ascension to Pentecost 10 days global wave of prayer. Everyone is welcomed to join in and cover as much of the route as they are able.
