Last year St Mary’s started to support Adoption Matters Northwest, through our Missionary and Charitable Giving scheme. Now, members of the committee are pleased to announce that the Chief Executive, Mr Norman Goodwin, is coming to speak at our Morning Service, on Sunday 9th March.
Do make a point of being there to find out more about the huge range of work carried out by this charity, from interviewing and selecting potential adoptive parents to placing children and supporting all parties thereafter. During coffee and cake in the Mews after the service, there’ll be a chance to chat to Mr Goodwin too. (N.B. Committee members, please don’t forget that you promised to bring the cake!)
Inviting Guest Speakers from the charities we support is all part of our on-going plan to build partnerships with our chosen organisations and to give members of the congregation an opportunity to learn more about how our donations are spent. We’ll be inviting another speaker later in the year.
