Healing on the Streets
This ministry now meets beside St Mary’ Church in St Mary’ Street in Weymouth from 10am-12noon on the first and third Saturdays in the month as follows:
National Day of Prayer
Catch The Fire Bournemouth are calling for a National Day of Prayer for our government and nation on Sunday December 9th. Please join in by praying as an individual, church, network of churches or prayer group. There is great power in unity - as we unite together on the same day to call for God's kingdom to come and His will to be done in the UK at this crucial time. Go to the church's website for more on the NDOP.

Request from Gary Spracklen
Please consider voting for The Prince of Wales School (where I am Headteacher) in the 'Aviva Community Fund' by visiting -https://tinyurl.com/VotePOWFS
Each registered user can place up to 10 votes for our school's project, which could see us benefit from £5,000 in funding to develop an inclusive wildlife garden for children with physical disabilities.
Vacancy for Voluntary Port Chaplain
An opportunity has arisen within the Sailors' Society for a voluntary Port Chaplain to serve in the Weymouth and Portland Port due to retirement. There are currently around 8 volunteer Chaplains who serve Seafarers from the Isle of Wight, Poole, Southampton to Chichester.
Founded more than 200 years ago in 1818, Sailors’ Society is a Christian charity supporting and caring for an often forgotten group of people. We are multi-denominational in terms of outlook, as are our trustees, staff and the service we provide.
We reach out to seafarers where they work – on board the huge variety of cargo and cruise ships and take them practical services like phone cards to connect with loved ones at home and the latest newsprint in many languages.
Present at many of the key ports around the world, our chaplains and volunteers assist hundreds of thousands of seafarers each year; extending a hand of friendship, hospitality and pastoral care to all we meet regardless of rank or circumstance.
As part of our mission, we provide a wide spectrum of support services – chaplaincy, spiritual guidance and counsel, provision of welfare support to seafarers and their families, assistance with continuing maritime education and, in dire need, financial help.
