Space to Grow in Parson Cross

Standard

PXI -Space to Grow is for people who find gardening and being outdoors a good way of helping them feel and be healthier—whether that’s through the exercise we get from digging, or from eating freshly grown fruit and vegetables, or just from the friends and company we can enjoy. We have three different sessions at three different locations (each with a slightly different feel) there is no charge to those taking part for any of these.

  • Tuesdays 10am-12noon @ Parson Cross Park Allotments–Plot107 (Families and children are welcome especially in school holidays.) As the allotments are locked people need to ring Nick in advance to let him know they’ll be coming, or identify themselves at the gate so they can be let in. Children are welcome but MUST be accompanied by an adult.
  • Thursdays 10am-12noon @LEAF (Herries Road). LEAF volunteers are present at this and other times and people are welcome to attend at their own convenience. Thursday mornings provide a space when Nick is available as an additional worker is on site to provide support.
  • Thursdays 12.30pm-3.00pm @Cross at Yew Lane. (From 23rd February) A soup lunch is available (we encourage people to make a donation where they can) followed by work in the gardens or the chance to enjoy the quiet “Resting Room”

We will all be changed

"Week of Christian Unity 2012" image from ctbi

For those of you with diaries with such things in them, you will know tomorrow sees the start of 2012 Week of Christian Unity, a time when Christians are invited to spend time together in worship. For those without such diaries, or those who don’t know what this week is about, here’s a bit of background.

The Churches Together in Britain and Ireland (ctbi) website talks about the theme for this week, and says:

“Change is at the heart of our Christian faith. Saint Paul said that anyone who is in Christ is a new creation, and we are called to live as children in the light.

The theme for the Week of Prayer for Christian Unity 2012 comes to us from the churches in Poland, who have reflected upon their own experience as a nation, and in particular how, as a nation, they have been changed and transformed by the many upheavals of their history, and sustained by their faith.

Change is also at the heart of the ecumenical movement. When we pray for the unity of the church we are praying that the churches that we know and which are so familiar to us will change as they conform more closely to Christ. This is an exciting vision, but also a challenging one. Furthermore, when we pray for this transforming unity we are also praying for change in the world.”
