Selection of a New Bishop of East Anglia


Bishop, Alan Hopes has informed us that the process has now begun to select a new Bishop of East Anglia. He asks each of us to recite this prayer for God’s guidance and blessings.


O God, eternal shepherd,

who govern your flock with unfailing care, grant in your boundless fatherly love
a pastor for your Church
who will please you by his holiness and to us show watchful care. Through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son, who lives and reigns with you
in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
God, for ever and ever. Amen
Our Lady of Walsingham. Pray for us.
Saint Felix. Pray for us.
Saint Oswald. Pray for us.
All Holy Martyrs and Saints of East Anglia. Pray for us.

Census Day will be Sunday 21st March 2021


What the census is: The census is a survey that happens every 10 years and gives us a picture of all the people and households in England and Wales. The census is unique. There’s simply nothing else that gives so much detail about us and the society we live in. All kinds of organisations, from local authorities to charities, use the information to help provide the services we all need, including transport, education and healthcare. Without the census, it would be much more difficult to do this. By taking part, you’ll be helping make sure you and your community get the services needed now and in the future.

Visiting Support Service for Older People in Peterborough.

Age UK have identified the significant need for additional support to be made available to older people in Peterborough, we are therefore able to provide free extra assistance for those over 65 in Peterborough when they need it most; particularly when they are experiencing a difficult period, such as bereavement, ill health, financial worries or housing concerns. We listen to your thoughts and wishes and together we will plan a desired outcome that helps you to access the services and support networks you need. Our Visiting Support Service for Older People (VSSOP) enables older people to stay independent and maintain health and wellbeing, by providing a service that meets individual need.

We can assist with forms, benefits, blue badges, organise bills, and assist with housing choices. If someone has a caring role we can support with this. The service can adapt to individual changing needs such as aids and equipment and falls prevention support. We also can also offer information about social opportunities and how you might access them. The team will decide if support can be given over the phone or if a home visit is needed, staff will have full PPE and socially distance. For more information or support please contact:

01354-776110 or email vssop@ageukcap.org.uk

Right to Life: Fetal Pain

- by rootadmn

- Ask your MP to sign a parliamentary motion calling on the Government to introduce new guidance on fetal pain. A new parliamentary motion (EDM 1340) is calling on the Government to introduce new guidance on fetal pain. The evidence that babies can feel pain in the womb, and during many abortions, highlights the humanity of the unborn child and provides another important reason to introduce legislation to protect the unborn child from abortion.

Right To Life UK have set up an easy-to-use tool which makes it simple to contact your MP, and ask them to sign this motion calling on the Government to introduce new guidance on fetal pain. It only takes 30 seconds using this easy-to-use tool. This tool can be accessed by visiting the link below:

www.righttolife.org.uk/FetalPainMotion

Please help stop dangerous ‘DIY’ home abortions becoming permanent.

The UK Government has launched a consultation on whether to make permanent the current temporary arrangement allowing ‘DIY’ home abortions.

Make your submission to the UK Government’s consultation on ‘DIY’ home abortion using this easy-to-use tool: https://righttolife.org.uk/ukconsultation

Ask your MP to support an amendment to help stop forced abortion in Xinjiang, China

There is extensive evidence that many women in the Uyghur Muslim community in Xinjiang, China are being subjected to forced abortions. Lord Alton is currently championing an amendment to the Trade Bill which would give British courts a role in determining whether a country is committing genocide. If you would like to email your MP asking them to support the amendment, you can do this easily using a tool which has been set up on the Genocide Response campaign website which can be accessed by visiting the link: https://genocideresponse.org/
