Trustee needed for EPH

Comments Off on Trustee needed for EPH

East Park Hostel (EPH) has a long established record of helping people who are homeless. The main work now is providing managed accommodation which prepares people for independent living.

EPH need a new trustee. The requirement is not onerous, but a genuine interest in helping people who are homeless to get on their feet is essential; and some knowledge of modern charity practice would be helpful .

One of the present trustees, Simon Villette, would be happy to come to talk to a church that might be interested in putting someone forward.

For more information contact Simon: villette3@hotmail.com

Is God calling you to use your gifts to volunteer?

Comments Off on Is God calling you to use your gifts to volunteer?

Is God calling you to take a step of faith and volunteer for a local christian focused organisation, whose aim is t reduce crime in the county.

C2C are a Northampton based christian charity that enables offenders to break the cycle of offending through positive engagement, courses, groups, and support in a variety of ways.

For our Womens centre, we are looking for ladies who have pampering skills, pastoral care, patience and a listening ear, experience in housing, benefits or debt counseling, skills in craft, artists, musicians or anyone with a passion for health and wellbeing.

We are also interested in talking to Men who are have a calling to mentor and walk along side male ex-offenders, with a view of developing their skills and finding employment.

But we are not just looking to limit ourselves to Northampton. If you live in Kettering, Corby, Wellingborough or Daventry and believe God is calling you to help us to reduce crime in the county, please contact Chris Smith Haynes on chris.smith-haynes@c2csocialaction.com for an application form and more details.

Pentecostals and Charismatics in Britain: An anthology

Comments Off on Pentecostals and Charismatics in Britain: An anthology

Drawing upon the scholarship of eminent academics and practitioners in the field of Pentecostal and Charismatic studies, Pentecostals and Charismatics in Britain puts into the public domain theological and sociological literature that posits contemporary thinking in key areas of British Pentecostal and Charismatic thought.
 
Topics covered in the anthology include: the theological and doctrinal marks of British Pentecostalism, Anglican-Pentecostal relations, and the impact of the Vineyard movement on Charismatic and Pentecostal worship in the UK.
 
Edited by Joe Aldred, staff member at Churches Together in England, this stellar collection of essays includes contributions from some of the leading thinkers in British Pentecostal studies. The anthology comes at a time when Pentecostals and Charismatics are seen to be a crucial element in the diversification of academic theology, and a major centre of growth in the UK church.
 
Foreword by Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby, Published 30 April 2019 £30.00, paperback SCM Press, Invicta House, 108 Golden Lane, London EC1Y 0TG www.scmpress.co.uk

Help for the Hope Centre FoodClub

Comments Off on Help for the Hope Centre FoodClub

Hope supporters will know all about our brilliant FoodClub project, distributing food and other goods at low prices to people on benefits, complementing the work of foodbanks to those in acute need or crisis.

We need help with this project as it moves from being staffed by paid staff with volunteers and corporate groups, to a solely volunteer led model, due to lack of funding for staff. We need volunteers to help all aspects of the club, from finding sources of food, especially in the food manufacturing and distribution systems as well as from supermarkets and shops, to  driving to pick up food that is donated, to helping sort food in our warehouse, through to helping distribute food to the pop-up shops, and helping co-ordinate, administer and promote the project.

Donations of food and toiletries are always welcome – tinned, ambient or fresh. We have plenty of pasta though!

We are also still keen to find homes for our cute and adorable food and toiletries bins for Hope’s day centre and Hope Foodclub.

Taking up no space, just 2ft 6 tall, these bins will enable your customers and members to donate much needed food and other goodies to Hope. If your school/shop/workplace/church/club/nursery/hospital/college can take one, give us a ring on 08455199371 or email fundraising@northamptonhopecentre.org.uk.

Follow the project on twitter and Instagram but also on its own Facebook page, @HopeFoodClub
