Wesley House Cambridge
Since 1921 it has been a gateway for students in the Wesleyan tradition into the excellent resources for learning in the University of Cambridge.
A group of brothers are live streaming an evening prayer each day at 7:30 p.m (uk time) lasting about 40 minutes.
It can be accessed via: http://taize.fr/en_article27540.html or on the Taize FaceBook page.
It’s also saved so can be accessed later. This is a very beautiful form of night prayer and such a gift.
Music - Just to enjoy listening to!
Just to let you know that the Just Giving Page set up by Richard Wain for us has raised the amazing figure of £1.130 PLUS £225 in Gift Aid from 40 people. TOTAL £1,355
In addition I have received a cheque to forward to Christian Aid and I know that some of you have made donations by cheque directly to Christian Aid and others may well have donated online or by the Text method. So ... an excellent result in all the circumstances - and encouragement to us all.
The 'Just Giving' Page is still open and it is always possible to donate online or send a cheque :)
Please use the links below or click on the Christian Aid picture to continue giving.

Making equipment for Care-Home workers
A lady in conrtact with Winchcombe contacted care homes to see what they needed. The answer came back asking for headbands to protect their ears from the face masks they are having to wear. Their ears are getting very sore and headbands with buttons mean they can loop the face masks round the buttons rather than their sore ears. They need 30 - 40 because they need to wash the reusable equipment regularly.
Many Care homes are crying out for headbands and masks and they can use home made cloth ones, hospitals seem to only able use headbands.
Please conctact you local Care homes and Hospices near you to arange delivery, they will be greatful for your support.
