As a disability activist I am trying to overlook what I regard as the “wrong” use of the word “disabilities” in the first line of this post, and instead want to commend this useful advice about making online material more accessible for disabled people. Every blessing, Andy Rickell

If you wonder why there will be no service at Ashcroft this coming Sunday morning, it’s because we will be joining with our Christian sisters and brothers across Cirencester at this joint service to celebrate the Church’s birthday on that first Pentecost. Please note the time, 10am, and join us. Every blessing, Andy Rickell

CIRENCESTER ASHCROFT WORK CLUB

WEEKLY UPDATE - UPDATED AT 14TH MAY 2024 (with updated next 4 weeks’ sessions)

(Written as usual from home in Stratton, Cirencester)

**NEWSFLASH**

Monday sessions have moved to St Lawrence’s Church, Chesterton, Cirencester from 4th March 2024 as part of building Cirencester Ashcroft Church’s partnership with St Lawrence’s. The Tuesday sessions will continue at Cirencester Ashcroft Church, Ashcroft Road, Cirencester, as usual.

The work club will continue to operate on most

Mondays - 9.00am to 11.00am at St Lawrence’s Church Centre
and
Tuesdays – 12.00pm to 2.00pm at Cirencester Ashcroft Church & Centre
(but not on Bank Holidays).

We are now usually open for confidential one-to-one face-to-face support at these times. We also provide one-to-one phone and online support at these times too.

We also work in partnership with Cirencester Jobcentre to support referred jobseekers who would like some extra assistance.

You can contact me at the usual work club times by :-

- Face-to-face;

- Email : workclub@ashcroftchurch.org.uk;

- Phone or text : 07951439302;

- Sending a message through the Cirencester Ashcroft Work Club Facebook page.

We can then have a chat face-to-face, by phone, by message, or by video link if we can set one up, and I will do my best to help you.

You can also contact me at other times and we will then agree an appointment time to have a proper conversation.

Specific opening times over the next few weeks are below. Later opening times for the period up to the beginning of OCTOBER 2024 are in the Events section (which is itself sometimes in the About section) of the Cirencester Ashcroft Work Club and Cirencester Ashcroft Church and Centre Facebook pages. To access those later times, you will now need to be signed in to Facebook yourself, as Facebook recently “upgraded” so that Events data cannot be accessed by internet search alone (at least that seems to be what’s happened). Also Facebook only lets us select a maximum of about 50 future dates for an event at the time it is first published, hence why it appears to stop at a random date.

Monday 20th May 9.00 - 11.00 (AT ST LAWRENCE’S CENTRE)
Tuesday 21st May 12.00 - 2.00 (AT ASHCROFT CENTRE)

Monday 27th May 9.00 - 11.00 (CLOSED - BANK HOLIDAY)
Tuesday 28th May 12.00 - 2.00 (AT ASHCROFT CENTRE)

Monday 3rd June 9.00 - 11.00 (CLOSED - VOLUNTEER ON LEAVE)
Tuesday 4th June 12.00 - 2.00 (AT ASHCROFT CENTRE)

Monday 10th June 9.00 - 11.00 (AT ST LAWRENCE’S CENTRE)
Tuesday 11th June 12.00 - 2.00 (AT ASHCROFT CENTRE)

(For those who are interested, I normally highlight the opening times for the next 4 weeks. However sometimes I increase this when they include a break, in part to make sure that the last week I show is one when we are open. This is to emphasise that any closure is only temporary. The work club is a key part of Ashcroft’s mission and outreach project until at least December 2026. After that date I intend to continue to run the work club indefinitely, whether or not part of a larger project.)

TUESDAY PRAYERS FOR GLOUCESTERSHIRE

I picked this topic because this article is inviting applications to be a voluntary custody visitor in the county, and the deadline is in the very near future, so I wanted to let you know about it. “Visiting people in prison” is specifically mentioned by Jesus as an example of what good Christian behaviour looks like. I remember being the only person amongst hundreds who asked the government to ensure disabled people were properly supported when in prison. Supporting prisoners, whatever they have done to find themselves there, is a key element of a civilised society. So we pray for the proper and civilised treatment of prisoners who live in our county, for all our sakes. We pray for all those in our county who work or volunteer to ensure prisoners are fairly treated. And we pray for all of us to demand a justice system that treats everyone justly, including prisoners. Every blessing, Andy Rickell, Circuit Social Justice Officer.
