CIRENCESTER ASHCROFT WORK CLUB

WEEKLY UPDATE - UPDATED AT 16TH AUGUST 2022 (with updated next 4 weeks’ sessions)

(Written unusually whilst on leave)

The work club will continue to operate on most

Mondays and Tuesdays – 12.00 to 2.00

(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 (Covid rules will apply, including face masks) : come to the front door of the Cirencester Ashcroft Centre and wait, but only if the work club pavement sign is out showing that we are open for face-to-face meeting (and not temporarily closed because of Covid rules);

- 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 (later opening times for the period up to early JANUARY 2023 are in the Events section/page of the Cirencester Ashcroft Work Club and Cirencester Ashcroft Church and Centre Facebook pages (Facebook only lets us select a maximum of 52 future dates for an event at the time it is first published)):-

Monday 22nd August 12.00 - 2.00 (FACE TO FACE, PHONE & ONLINE)
Tuesday 23rd August 12.00 - 2.00 (FACE TO FACE, PHONE & ONLINE)

Monday 29th August 12.00 - 2.00 (CLOSED - BANK HOLIDAY)
Tuesday 30th August 12.00 - 2.00 (FACE TO FACE, PHONE & ONLINE)

Monday 5th September 12.00 - 2.00 (FACE TO FACE, PHONE & ONLINE)
Tuesday 6th September 12.00 - 2.00 (FACE TO FACE, PHONE & ONLINE)

Monday 12th September 12.00 - 2.00 (FACE TO FACE, PHONE & ONLINE)
Tuesday 13th September 12.00 - 2.00 (FACE TO FACE, PHONE & ONLINE)

(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 2024. 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

Agriculture is not something I know much about at all. So I depend on those that know more to sort out this type of problem that can result in animals suffering, which matters greatly if we care about all God’s creation. Gloucestershire is clearly a county for which agricultural practices are a key part of how we run our economy and affect our values. So we pray for all those involved in agriculture in the county, that they are enabled to do their work in a way that ensures the welfare of animals and of the environment they manage. We pray for those who are responsible for monitoring the law in this area, that they do so with zeal and wisdom. And we pray for all of us who might spot a farm animal in distress that we will bring it to the attention of someone who can help.

The Prayer of the Day for 24th May 2022 from the Methodist Church website :-

“God beyond all speech, above all thought and surpassing all imagination; when you speak, may we listen; when you draw near, may we rejoice in your presence; when you reveal yourself, may we bow in adoration. Amen.

Gregory of Nazianzus (c.329-390)”

Engineering is a very wide field, as this article explains. My mum wanted me to be an accountant (a safe office job as she saw it) but I wanted to be educated as an engineer, because I wanted to be involved in the creation of practical things that would benefit the world. Whatever your reason for thinking engineering might offer a new career for you, please come and talk to us at Cirencester Ashcroft Work Club and we can help you investigate the range of things that come within “engineering”. Our contact details are on the Cirencester Ashcroft Work Club Facebook page. Andy Rickell, Cirencester Ashcroft Work Club Manager
