Sat 26 November: The Mother's Union met at Holy Ascension at 12.40 ready to walk to the market place at 1pm for short demonstration about gender based violence and genital mutilation.

The campaign is called 1 in 3.

. Gender-based violence is one of the most widespread violations of human rights. Spanning many societies, it can affect anyone at any time and takes many forms. It can be part of a damaging cultural ‘norm’, or hidden behind closed doors. It can be very difficult to ask for help.

What are churches nationally and locally around Settle doing about climate change? Find out by Downloading the paper that Judith Allinson wrote in Feb 2020 on this topic .. But shouldn't we be doing a lot more? .

The UN Secretary General, Antonio Guterres says the fight against climate change is far more important that the pandemic and yet global fossil fuel companies are still subsidised with 300bn pound each year. Guterres said - "I call on everyone - from government, civil society and business leaders to individual citizens - to heed these facts and take urgent action to halt the worst effects of climate change." (See pictures at end pf this page)

Contact info@ctisad.org.uk with specific questions. As Bishop Nick says the worship of the church continues. It is being done differently. Through the prayers of clergy and laity, through prayer in homes and families and social media we still meet, pray, care and worship.

Note: Settle as a whole has a Community Response
01729 825493 --- communityresponse@settlevictoriahall --- settlevictoriahall.org.uk/communityresponse

AGE UK - tel 01729 823 066 info@ageuknorthcraven.org has taken over much of the worrk of Settle Community Response - but the latter, and the village response teams are still there should the situation get worse.
Contact these if you need help (groceries delivering, advice etc), or are able to help, or have enquiries.

Ask Settle about Individual Village Response Teams (e.g. Langcliffe, Gargrave, Horton.)

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

We offer prayers for all who are caused distress in the current situation: whether due to not being able to visit relatives in palliative care, or who are seeing their jobs and incomes vanish, or have extra work and responsiblilites

and give thanks for silver linings.
