Pope’s Intentions for the month of October

ToWNS Volunteers Needed

ToWNS (Torbay Winter Night Shelter) involves Torbay’s Christians from different denominations working together in a very practical way to share the love of Jesus Christ with our homeless brothers & sisters. Churches around Torbay take turns to provide the venue, where a hotmeal, safe place to sleep and simple breakfast are provided during the coldest months of winter. Some previous guests have said that without ToWNS they would no longer be alive. Here at Assumption Parish we have a well-established band of friendly volunteers who are happy working together and have provided a shelter at the Salvation Army Church in Market Street, for the last 3 years.

For 2019 we would welcome some new volunteers for Tuesdays between Feb 7 th &
March 14 th . Approximate shift patterns are: 5.30 – 9.30pm, 9.30pm – 7.15am, or 7.15-9.00 am (on the Wed morning). It doesn’t matter if you cannot manage every night, or all of a shift, as every little helps!

We particularly need helpers for the early morning shift, as dear Jimmy Kelly and Augustine were stalwarts for that shift. Training will be available before Christmas and it has become a tradition that we have a social night together when the ToWNS period is over. If you think you may be interested in helping us, please phone Anne and Adam Krasnopolski on 01803 605801.

 

ALPHA AT THE CHURCH OF THE ASSUMPTION BEGINNING ON OCTOBER 3RD

Alpha will begin here in Abbey Road on Wed 3rd Oct at 6pm. Beginning with a meal.
