Do you live in or around the Tang Hall/Burnholme/Heworth area of York?
York Neighbours is particularly looking for volunteers in these areas at the moment. There is no minimum time commitment other than completing a basic training session of two hours. Volunteers are emailed with one-off tasks such as changing a lightbulb for an older person not able to do it and with no-one to ask. This is a great way to ‘love your neighbour’. Please see our website for further information www.yorkneighbours.org.uk and if you are interested please email email@example.com or phone Helen Aitchison or Sarah Wallis on 01904 891627. Thank you.
Cory Butler is helping to run a mission trip for people from Texas here in York. He needs a few more people who could help with providing a room for a pair, more information is in his message below:
We have a team (of 31 people!) from Texas coming in 8-15 July. I am still in need of 5-6 homes to host 2 people each - can be 2 boys, or 2 girls, older teens or adults. The basic need is a bedroom the pair can share, breakfast in the morning and 4-5 dinners. Each day the team will be serving in two local schools. In the evenings they will be at things like Belfrey Youth. I have a schedule for their entire time in York. We are providing transport so the host home does not have to.
If you can help with providing a room over these dates please let Joy Baxter know at firstname.lastname@example.org Thank you!

Please also pray for Rev David Pickersgill and the parishes in Newark where Chris will be serving as a Curate and also for Ruth.
