Please read this positive email from Major Paul Kingscott, Assistant Secretary for Mission, received late last week.
Ruth, with her husband Karl (Ed note: Captains), were the first Salvation Army responders (along with Lieut Anne-Marie Gifford) at the Grenfell Tower fire, they have worked tirelessly since ensuring that the response vehicle is stocked, resourced and manned. Since then we have been overwhelmed by offers of support but here is the outworking of God’s mission through an unprecedented event.
So please read and share this email with your Corps, Centres and community.
We have every reason to be grateful to God for the young people we have in our Corps as we witnessed at Cake and Cabaret last week.
Recently Nigel and Margaret Day spent 18 days in South Africa. Yesterday they visited Cameo to talk about their experience and show pictures. The Cameo members were delighted with the afternoon’s entertainment which was topped off with cheese and biscuits, cake and chocolate chip cookies (hang the diet!!!)
Why not join us on Wednesdays at 1.30pm?.
With permission we again bring extracts from Spiral Magazine (June 2017 issue) published by the Parish of South Gillingham.

On Wednesday of last week, Warren Wood primary Academy hosted a Race For Life in aid of cancer research. A fortnight ago each child was given a sponsor form and a covering letter explaining what was happening and inviting parents to join in with the child. Katelyn asked Mum (Sharon) if she would join her and run in memory of Sharon’s father, Rodney Clothier, who passed away at Easter from an aggressive form of cancer (Burkets Lymphoma). Between them they collected sponsors and on Wednesday then ran/walked and jogged around the school playing field 11 times. They raised £250 in sponsorship and both Katelyn and Sharon received a medal for participating.
Well done to you both
Cameo (1.30-2.30pm Wednesday) will feature the ‘Tweenagers‘ recent visit to Matumaini School in Dar-es-Salaam. Major Nigel Schultz will give an account of the visit together with photographs. This was a mind blowing experience for our youngsters so why not join us to hear about it.
Our morning meeting yesterday was shaped around our young people, the ‘Tweenagers‘, who have recently visited the Matumaini School in Tanzania. Part of their own video was shown as a prelude to the worship which was led by Major Nigel Schultz.

As men and women step into polling booths and mark their ballot papers, we pray for our future political leaders. Grant them the wisdom, strength and love needed to govern at home and abroad in these days. We set aside party politics in order to bring each other before your throne of Grace. Please pray for: high voter turnout; candidates and their families; and future Ministers and Members of Parliament. (Salvation Army Public Affairs Unit).
Loving God, Thank you for caring about how our country is run, and that we have the right to vote for our politicians and government. in the run-up to this general election there are so many policies to understand, and so many different points of view to consider, sometimes I wonder whether there’s any point in voting, whether anyone cares what I think. As I choose who I am going to vote for, help me not to be cynical about politics and politicians, help me to remember that my vote can make a difference, and help me vote for those people who will protect the poor and vulnerable, and do all they can to make our nation a place of fairness and peace. We make this prayer, because you call us to act justly, love mercy and walk humbly with you, our God. Amen (Church of England Public Affairs Unit)
