CIRENCESTER ASHCROFT WORK CLUB

WEEKLY UPDATE - UPDATED AT 28TH JUNE 2022 (with updated next 4 weeks’ sessions)

(Written as usual from home in Stratton, Cirencester)

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 4th July 12.00 - 2.00 (FACE TO FACE, PHONE & ONLINE)
Tuesday 5th July 12.00 - 2.00 (FACE TO FACE, PHONE & ONLINE)

Monday 11th July 12.00 - 2.00 (CLOSED - VOLUNTEER ON LEAVE)
Tuesday 12th July 12.00 - 2.00 (FACE TO FACE, PHONE & ONLINE)

Monday 18th July 12.00 - 2.00 (FACE TO FACE, PHONE & ONLINE)
Tuesday 19th July 12.00 - 2.00 (FACE TO FACE, PHONE & ONLINE)

Monday 25th July 12.00 - 2.00 (FACE TO FACE, PHONE & ONLINE)
Tuesday 26th July 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

A lovely article about the historic support given by some local people to Jewish refugees fleeing Nazi persecution. It reminds us of the past involvement of the county in supporting refugees at a time when we are having to help a new wave of them from Ukraine. So we pray for all those involved in organisations that support refugees in our county. We pray for all those local families and individuals who have been and are willing to support current refugees, whether from Ukraine or elsewhere. And we pray that we all play our part in making refugees feel welcome and enabled to build new lives amongst us. Every blessing, Andy Rickell, Circuit Steward and Portfolio Holder for Social and Climate Justice

This is another of the excellent articles about jobseeking on the BBC website, with helpful tips for preparing for online recruitment interviews. Modern recruitment is much more likely to use online interviews for at least part of the process. If you would like some specific advice about being ready for the ways an employer might use to find out if you are a good candidate, then please get in touch with the Cirencester Ashcroft Work Club as we can provide you with tailored support. Our contact details are on the Cirencester Ashcroft Work Club Facebook page. Andy Rickell, Cirencester Ashcroft Work Club Manager

The Prayer of the Day for 25th March 2022 from the Methodist Church website:-

“Holy God, our experience of pandemic and lockdown has made us rethink the meaning of place. So often we have focused on buildings and how we make others welcome in those places. But the place where we all really need to be is in your arms of love, in your family and in your kingdom. For in your arms, your family and your kingdom there is not just room for all, but a role for all.
Inspire us with a fresh vision of how we can invite others into that place of encounter with you, offering welcome, forgiveness, grace and joy. Thank you for the promise of a place where each of us belongs and where you dwell among us. Amen.

Gillian Newton, Sheffield District Chair”

Sunday service from Ashcroft Church in Cirencester (Great service. The recording loses audio and video briefly at the start of the service itself, but is otherwise fine. Every blessing, Andy Rickell, Chair of Trustees)
