One World Week

22nd October 2006

A United Service for One World Week was held at St.Joan of Arc Church on the afternoon of October 22nd.

The theme of the service was ‘Mind the Gap’.  The aim was to point out the inequalities in today’s world as trade talks fail the world’s poor; as the hole in the ozone layer gets bigger; as violence increases in a divided world and encourages us that, if we speak with one voice, we can help to do something about it.

There were two local speakers drawing attention to local issues.  Vince Crowley spoke about the gardening teams from Bells PieceNasir Virji about the work of First Base for the Homeless.

There was a retiring offering for the work of First Base and afterwards there was the opportunity for the congregation to enjoy tea together in the hall.
