Growing in partnership
A St. Columba’s our vision for our Children and Families Worker was that she would spend part of her week working with a parish in the north of the city that is less well resourced than we are. Over the last few months we have begun forging a partnership with St. Cuthbert’s Fir Vale, and last Sunday it was great to welcome Revd Louise Collins and members of the congregation. We were inspired to hear Louise’s vision for sharing and living the gospel in a multi faith area where 44% of children are living in poverty ( see faith and worship/sermons). We’ll be collecting gifts of non-perishable food for the Fir Vale Food Bank at our Harvest Festival on October 14th, and we’re looking forward to a return visit to Fir Vale soon.
