St Mary's, Wombwell & St George's, Jump
As all Members of church will know, we’re hoping to raise £100,000 to help fund a glass screen to partition off the Chancel.
We’ve started to use the old Chancel a lot more for the work we do as a church especially amongst members of the Wombwell Community - the Community Café, the Foodbank, an after school club for Primary age children and for a youth group. We now have a ‘Just Giving’ Page to help us with that fundraising. If you want to support us please use the QR code to access our Just Giving Page.
The Food Bank at St Mary's Wombwell, which is a spoke for the Barnsley Foodbank is available for anyone who has been referred on Monday's between 9.45 am and 11.00 am. Eventually we would like to run this alongside a Community Cafe.
You can make condations to the Barnsley Foodbank by placing them in the Grub Tub just inside the church door. Currently the Foodbank is most urgently needing tinned potatoes and packet mash, toiletries (soap, shampoo and shower gel, size 6 nappies, gravy granules and UHT milk.
Our Monday Cafe is now up and running. It provides a chance to chat, have a drink and someting to eat. Please could you pray that God would upe this to draw people to Himself; please do come along and bring a friend, and if you can't come, let someone else know about it.
Is an organisation that serves Christians who are persecuted for their faith. Their work started by Brother Andrew (you may have read his story in the book God's Smuggler).

Pray for peace in the war torn areas of the world. Pray particularly for Russia and the Ukraine and for Israel and Gaza that a peaceful solution might be found to these conflicts.
Pray for those who are struggling to cope both financially, emotionally and mentally during the cost of living crisis. Pray particularly for those who are losing their jobs or who have lost their jobs recently and for whom the Christmas period will be very difficult. We particularly think of the employees of Safestyle UK which has recently gone into administration.
Continue to pray for the St Mary’s Chancel Improvement Scheme and for the successful outcome of the fundraising scheme. Pray that this will enable St Marys to become much more fuel efficient, cut our carbon footprint and help with the sustainability of what we do as a church.
Pray for those who are facing an undertain future through no fault of their own and for those who are particulalry suffering as a result of the financial crisis.. Pray that they may find a way forward out of their troubles.
