                                   Let your merciful ears, O Lord,
                                   be open to the prayers of your humble servants;
                                   and that they may obtain their petitions
                                   make them to ask such things as shall please you;
                                   through Jesus Christ your Son our Lord,
                                   who is alive and reigns with you,
                                   in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
                                   one God, now and for ever.

Opening the Church We all agreed at the Awayday that it was important to open the church more often during the week, not just for services and meetings. We will be doing this, from 11.00 am to 3.00 pm, every weekday during the month of September to see what response we get; this will include opening on the 8th & 9th for Heritage Open Days. 

Advance Notice - Save the Date! Eco-church regional conference, here at SAPLC, Saturday 21st October: we have had a visit from A Rocha’s Eco-Church Manager, who was impressed by this venue and we talked about the programme. We will be the northern conference (the other one is in London) and we are hoping for 100-125 delegates – so it is a big, positive thing for us at SAPLC! It will be a chance to get expert opinions on how to improve our eco credentials, and to talk to other churches on the same journey. The Eco Group are very excited about it all! More information as it emerges. Please consider signing up for the event.

Music Festival 2017: advance notice of this November’s Music Festival, which Ray Kohn is running here at SAPLC again. As usual, the festival showcases many genres of music, and Ray concentrates on young and/or emerging groups of musicians. Programmes now available and we know from past festivals it will be a wonderful week of concerts!

Good Grief: 3 – 30 August – 35 Chapel Walk. An exhibition of sculpture depicting the stages of grief and loss. Born out of Jean Parker’s own experience of cancer, good Grief present a powerful and unique visual exploration of the grief process relating not only to loss of health, but also to significant loss of any kind.

Sheffield South Live at Home are delighted that our application to the Tesco ‘Bags of Help’ Grant Scheme has been successful and our project ‘Peak District Outings’ has been put forward to a customer vote in Tesco stores during July and August 2017!  We could win up to £4000 which would make such a difference to the lives of older people in our community! Please tell your friends and family and ask them to vote for us and remember to get your token at checkout and pop it in our box!  We will be putting updates on Facebook too so you can follow our page – Sheffield South Live at Home – and see how we are doing!

Fairtrade and Sainsburys   Sainsbury's intend to drop the Fairtrade mark and replace it with the phrase "fairly-traded". Such a course of action could be followed by other major organisations, and could seriously undermine the Fairtrade scheme. If you are concerned about this development, please consider signing the Change.org petition  at https://www.change.org/p/sainsbury-s-don-t-ditch-fairtrade to tell Sainsbury’s: Don’t ditch Fairtrade. Sainsbury’s have asked the Fairtrade Foundation to work with them on their scheme, but they have some major concerns about it.

Age Better in Sheffield programme. South Yorkshire Housing Association are looking for "Access Ambassadors" who will volunteer to befriend an older person in need of support. This would involve giving 2 hours a week to help someone get out of the house, go to the shops and regain their confidence and independence to travel. Contact Adam Batty at a.batty@syha.co.uk, for more information or to sign up.
