One World Week’s 2017 theme:

 

GOOD NEIGHBOURS - My World Depends on Us

 Being a "good neighbour" means much more than just being quiet and unobtrusive!  It includes (according to various faith traditions) actively looking out for our neighbours to ensure their needs are met.  It applies at personal, local, national and international levels. 
The UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)  have identified the needs of our global neighbours.  Governments around the world, including that of the UK, have pledged to address them.

Active citizenship, media literacy and critical thinking are vital tools in acknowledging our interdependence with others, locally as well as farther afield, while countering populism, extremism and hate.  

The strap line "My World Depends on Us"  reminds us that our personal world is directly affected by what we do, purchase,read, say, consume, vote, ... and that this does not happen in isolation.  Our life depends on how we impact on and influence others in our common experience at home and in the world.

From Rev Steve Bennett......

 We have started Messy Church at Burnham on the first Saturday of each month. We are looking for people to help with this new venture so we can form at least two teams. This will mean that the commitment to Messy Church will only need to be every other month.

Specifically, we are looking for people who are willing to work directly with young people, but we also would welcome those who are able to be there on the door as welcomers and those willing to help with food.

If you feel you might be interested please contact John Trebble or Revd Steve Bennett.

If you are unsure about Messy Church, you are welcome to come along to see what we do. Our next meetings are

November 4th – Remembering          December 2nd - Christmas
