We are thrilled to report that Neil and the team
have been welcomed into Ryburn Valley High School and built deeper relationships in Brighouse High School. There are also several trained Listeners are waiting to be used in new High Schools.
The It’s Your Move
books are due today – the start of this year’s outreach to 2200 Year 6 pupils. Each It's Your Move book costs £1.20 - would you consider joining with other individuals and churches who sponsor the cost of this outreach? Often the books are used as part of a lesson/assembly around the transition to High School. See here to donate
The volunteer/supporters’ event
at The Engine Room, Dean Clough has been postponed until the Autumn - our apologies.
CICS will be working alongside other Christians in Calderdale, particularly Bus Oasis and Halifax Central Church at Love Calderdale
on Saturday 14th May. We expect to be involved in Craft work, Prayer Spaces and Information Point and will be involved in activities as and when we have help. As in previous years, we would value all help available from half an hour to the whole day. The event is planned to run in Woolshops from 11.00 – 4.00 and CICS will be based by the BusOasis. We can promise a great atmosphere.
fortnight (May 8th - 22nd) CICS has arranged events on Wednesday 18th May, 10am at 4 Briar Hey Lane HX7 5PJ and 7.30pm at Highgate Methodist. Please do pray for our schools - see here for a list of Calderdale's schools and the fantastic Pray4Schools website
