WOMEN'S WORLD DAY OF PRAYER

Each year the service for the Women's World Day of Prayer is held in a different church in Oswestry and indeed in a circle all round the world. On Friday, 3rd March 2017 it is the turn of St Oswald's. The service is written by the Christian women of the Philippines and called "Am I Being Unfair To You".  Everyone, including gentlemen, will be very welcome.

------------------- 

The next SCWP prayer breakfast is to be hosted by Cornerstone Baptist Church, Lower Brook Street, Oswestry, SY11 2HJ, on Saturday, March 4th. Please note that, in response to requests, this will be at the slightly later time of 8.30 a.m.

Our thanks go to the Pastor and members of Cornerstone Church for their hospitality.

Please ring Ruth Robinson on 01691 658401 by Wednesday, March 1st if you plan to attend.

The Foodbank is short of volunteers. We need people who could meet and greet our clients, listen to them in a non- judgemental way, signpost them on to other agencies and process paperwork so that the client can get their food from us. We of course give training and support,
Thank you for your help.
