Prison Ministry
The latest batch of items which will be delivered to Thorn Cross and Styal Prison next week.
This batch includes release bags, foil blankets, waterproof ponchos, birthing bags and associated contents.
Thanks to members across the Diocese who have donated monies to our Prison Ministry to enable the purchase of all these items.



Journey into Light Art Exhibition
St Stephen's, Prenton has been hosting, for 11 days, the Journey into Light Exhibition of Art produced by prisoners at Styal and Thorn Cross prisons. Joan Colwell came and explained how the exhibition had come about and what Mothers' Union has done in the past and is now doing at those prisons. It has been a real privilege to host this exhibition and, as it passes on to other churches, finishing at St George's, Stockport, I hope they have a similar response. See Birkenhead Deanery page for Grace Blackmore's poem which was written for and read at our meeting in church.



Collecting Tins
The collecting tins have arrived in the office. We are awaiting delivery of the cardboard collecting boxes.
The order form is on the Resources page.

Office Meeting Room Available
The first group used the meeting room at the office on 18th June. It all went very well and it was lovely to welcome members into the office.
I would love to have more groups visiting the office.

2019 Quiet Day at Foxhill
The title of the day was "A journey with the psalms" led by Revd Christine Broad, our Diocesan Chaplain. It was a lovely day enjoyed by all.
