Blakeley Green House, Rogation Day service

The annual Rogation Day service takes place on Sunday 5th May 3pm at Blakeley Green House, (which is a Sheltered and supported housing environment for individuals with severe and enduring mental health problems.)

We as a church support the 13 tenants throughout the year with Christian ethos and financial support.

The service takes the form of walking the grounds to bless the house, grounds, and animals; it’s a nice service.

All are welcome to attend, we also would like to welcome new members to help us support the trust.

Dementia Friends

We often hear about dementia but do we really know what it is and what it’s like to have it?  It makes such a huge difference to people with dementia if those around them know what dementia is and how it might affect them.

Dementia Friends aims to make everyday life better for people with dementia by changing the way the nation thinks, talks and acts. By 2015, we want there to be a million people with the know-how to help people with dementia feel understood and included in their community.

You can find out more about how to become a Dementia  Friend by visiting www.dementiafriends.org.uk.  Alternatively, speak to Susan Fisher, who is exploring the possibility of training for Dementia Friends at St Paul’s.

Harvest and the Wolverhampton Food Bank

Wolverhampton Food BankThank you to everyone who brought goods to the St Paul’s School or Church Harvest festivals. The tins and packets were delivered to the Wolverhampton Food Bank on Tuesday, where they will be used to provide food parcels to families in difficulty. The photograph shows some of the volunteers at the food bank sorting the goods and putting together the parcels.

We are continuing to collect items for the Food Bank and for the Little Brothers of the Good Shepherd, week by week. There is a box in the church lobby for tins and packets for the Food Bank, and a plastic basket for men’s toiletries and food items for the Little Brothers. There are full lists of suitable items on the ‘how we can help’ leaflet in church.

The Food Bank also welcomes volunteers. If you’d like to know more, speak to Jim.

Get yer spades out!

Blakely Green House are doing a Garden Tidy on Monday 29th October and need volunteers to help between 10am and 2pm.

Please bring your own tools if possible.  As this falls during the schools’ half-term break we hope we can get lots of help.

One of the things we are looking to tidy up is some old vines for which there are (we have been told) plenty of grapes that could be used for wine making !!!

For more information, please speak to Ron McTurk
