1/ Christian Aid Week a 2nd collection will take place after Masses this weekend.  Please add your donation to the envelope & fill in the Gift Aid section if a tax payer.  Thank you

 

 

2/ Live Simply Tip of the Week Buy less stuff—Before purchasing something new, ask yourself, “Do I need this? Does this bring me joy?” Have clothes, shoes, and other items repaired rather than throwing them out.

 

3/ Refugees and Asylum Seekers For many years local refugees and asylum seekers have sought English lessons, few of them are easy access (no registration required) or are for those with little or no English or can cater for different levels of English.  Many refugees and asylum seekers face significant barriers to joining classes (difficult time/place/childcare needs/wrong level etc.), Worthing 4 Refugees’ response has been to provide very successful one to one teaching in their home.  Worthing 4 Refugees are launching a pilot of new easy-access English classes.  Starting on May 1st,  It will not stop during the school holidays, so it may particularly be useful during late July and August. It is also open to non-refugees/asylum seekers for a small charge (£1.50 per class); it’s FREE for refugees and asylum seekers.  worthing4refugees.org.uk/   https://mcusercontent.com/f2d882b822585a73ec281fb6a/files/0f4d2ad6-01f0-7312-3117-096121e47cf7/W4R_English_Classes_Flyers.pdf
