Holy Trinity Schull will be joining in with people around the world on the World Day of Prayer on the 3rd March at 6:00pm.
This year the service has been prepared by the women of Taiwan. The service shares letters of encouragement sent to women who faced suffering and injustice, the daily struggles of life and concern for our environment. These stories of faith contemplate issues that are shared by women and girls around the world and continue to challenge us to prayerful action.
You are all welcome to share in the service at Holy Trinity, Schull and to join us for a cup of tea after the service.
Aid for Turkey and Syria
The Church of Ireland Bishops’ Appeal for World Aid and Development has launched a call for donations to help the people of Turkey and Syria following the earthquake on Monday 6 February.
Bishops’ Appeal has immediately released €10,000 from its reserves to Christian Aid for its work in the area, and is encouraging parishes to contribute to this appeal in support of Christian Aid over the coming Sundays. All details about how to give are provided below.
Christian Aid has a track record of working together with local partners in north-west Syria since 2012. The agency and its partners are already providing winter kits to people seeking shelter in the region, where over four million people are in need of aid due to the civil war. They will scale this work up to meet the immediate humanitarian needs of those affected by the earthquake.
How can we help?
Donations can be made, in euro or in sterling, in the following ways:
• An online donation at www.bishopsappeal.ireland.anglican.org/give
• A direct lodgement into the Bishops’ Appeal bank account (details of which are provided on the Bishops’ Appeal website at the link provided above)
• Sending a cheque, payable to Church of Ireland Bishops’ Appeal, to: Church of Ireland Bishops’ Appeal, Church of Ireland House, Church Avenue, Rathmines, Dublin 6, D06 CF67
• Making a donation through a Church of Ireland parish or diocesan office.
A big thank you for your support for our Carol Services held in December. Through your generosity we were able to donate €730 to Cork Simon and €450 to West Cork Rapid Response.
