Our 2018/19 session began in early September. New members are very welcome at our fortnightly meetings, which are held at 7.30p.m. in the church foyer. On the 6th September we had a visit from Margaret, one of the volunteers working with Teams4U, who told us of their work collecting in Christmas Boxes to take to countries in Europe, distributing them to children and families living in extreme poverty or experiencing challenge in their lives. The Church Mission Group took this on board also, and we are delighted that 38 boxes were taken to Teams4U on Monday, 12th November. We have enjoyed some excellent evenings up to now - ranging from the Traidcraft 'Who Picked My Tea' Project through thinking about Vote 100 and the Suffragette Movement, to hearing of the significance of the British Sign Language, and also discovering how the small village of Wilms Low turned into the area of Wilmslow that we know today. (The Low is the small hill rising up behind St. Bart's Church). 15th November a Speaker from East Cheshire Hospice talked to us about their work and outreach in this their 30th Anniversary Year, and on 29th we turned our minds back to a recent project called 'Parliament Week - it was an interesting evening and some of the Quiz questions taxed our members greatly! We finished with our Christmas evening on 13th December, when Sue Hector came along to demonstrate and make with each of us a Decoration for our Christmas Table. The Group resumes on 24th January and has a practical evening, joining in with the worldwide 70273 Project. An atrocity of the Second World War when the Nazis removed adults and children who were deemed to be less than perfect. They were marked with 2 red crosses so those undertaking the task knew who they had to deal with. A Project to remember those who died so needlessly has gathered momentum and we are encouraged to join the quilt-making process so that each child or adult of that immense number is remembered.
Prayer for the day
For World Thinking Day, the day when Guiding and Scouting remember the birthdays of Lord and Lady Baden Powell, the founders of these two wonderful organisations for young people, the largest in the world, may these Movements continue to prosper and give life-enhancing skills to the boys and girls involved.
