Derby City Mission's 'SAFE SPACE'
Derby City Mission is recruiting for ‘Safe Space’, a new initiative providing a place where we will welcome a cohort of ‘known’ entrenched rough sleepers and encourage engagement to address the causes of their homelessness and seek positive change.  We believe in providing a high quality service to our homeless guests, many of whom have a range of support needs such as alcohol/drug dependency and mental health issues, based on a Christian ethos of love and compassion.

Safe space will operate from one central location 7 days a week, 24 hours a day covered by various shift rotations and, as Derby City Mission employees, you will be working in partnership with two other key agencies in the city who also value this vulnerable people group.

Hello All,

I am writing on behalf of Christian Education: Chesterfield Secretary Mavis Plumtree who is recovering from illness. Please remember her in your prayers.

There will be a forum to discuss plans for the 2019 Procession of Witness (Whit Walks), on Monday February 11th  at 7.30pm at Rose Hill URC. Members of all the churches in Chesterfield and district are welcome.

Please come along and help us to shape this year’s celebration. Feel free to invite anyone that you think might be interested. The aim is to involve as many people as possible in the planning stages so as to make sure that we make an effective Act of Witness on the day.  We hope that The Procession will once again be an effective celebration of God’s love and that it will benefit from large numbers walking , many decorated floats on lorries & trailers , some walking tableaux and indeed spectacle of any kind . 

The CE:C need your help tho give the occasion a  vibrant feel that can convey,  through the power of the Holy Spirit,  a clear message to the people of our town and to visitors who turn out and watch.

Please do your best to invite members of your church to come along at 7.30pm to Rose Hill URC

Best wishes and thank-you in advance for your help and support.

Chris Townsend  ( Ex-Officio Member of CE:C )
