The World Mission Council asks us to pray for women in the world church

October 26, 2017

Father, You have created us in your image and love us equally yet around the World women suffer discrimination, violence and abuse because of their gender. Lord, make us a church that speaks out against injustice in all its forms – human trafficking and modern slavery, sexual and physical abuse, emotional coercion and subjugation.
Equip the women of your world church to work in your service, to be powerful witnesses and agents of change and to speak out for the rights of all to live a life of fullness in your grace. Amen

Sleep in the park and eradicate homelessness!

October 26, 2017

Saturday 9th December 2017, Edinburgh’s Princes Street Gardens. Social Bite, a proactive charity working around Scotland with and for homeless people, is organising the world’s largest ever sleep-out and are hoping to attract 9,000 people (over the age of 16). The charity hopes that by raising funds and working together, the people of Scotland will create such an impetus that homelessness will be eradicated over a five-year period. The aim is not only to find provision for housing, but also to provide rehabilitation, job opportunities and support that will help people get back on their feet and find their place within society. The hope is that the many charities who work in these areas might also link up to provide ongoing support and care. Social Bite has gathered together a range of amazing people to the sleep out – John Cleese, Deacon Blue, Rob Brydon, Sir Bob Geldof, Liam Gallagher and Amy Macdonald who will be present on the night. The challenge is for each individual to raise a minimum of £100 towards the cause. 2,000 people have already signed up. There’s still some way to go to reach 9,000 people.
