Comments Off on Hymn Books need a new home

St Giles Church used “Hymns that Live” for a number of years for services in a day centre for elderly persons, and now have insufficient in a good state for our need. This selection of 74 hymns was compiled in 2002 by the Christian Council on Ageing in A5 format.  Index can be provided on request. We have 20 good copies to give away and a few that could be made good with some TLC.

You may be able to help the air ambulance service

Comments Off on You may be able to help the air ambulance service

Every day of the year, Derbyshire,Leicestershire & Rutland Air Ambulance and Warwickshire & Northamptonshire Air Ambulance are helping save more lives. Critical care paramedics, trauma doctors and pilots fly an average of three rescue missions per service per day. We deliver life-saving care within minutes to those in greatest need. Each mission costs £1,700.  Our charity receives no government funding, we rely solely on public donations.

What we are asking is,  would it be possible to put one of our recycling clothing bank in your car park or in an area of your site or any other sites you manage where there could be space for it. Each bank measure 4ft 1inch wide, 5ft long and 6ft high. They are emptied and maintained by us. ​

If this is something you feel that you would be able to do, I would be happy to speak to you and answer any questions you may have.

Please contact me on 07419766890. or at

Many thanks

The Universal Day of Prayer for Students is on the 17th of February 2019. This annual event has been celebrated since 1898, making it one of the oldest ecumenical days of prayer.

The Student Christian Movement, one of our Bodies in Association, has produced a number of resources to download encouraging churches to mark the occasion.

SCM hopes churches across the nation will spend this day praying for students alongside other churches throughout the world.
