Harvest Resources

Harvest celebrations may be far from your thoughts right now but we just want to let you know that Church Urban Fund resources for Harvest will be available on our website from 15th August.

Harvest means different things in different congregations. Whether you are in a rural parish, with the fruits of the earth all around you, or in the city or suburbs, for all of us it can be a time to reflect on the food we receive as gifts of God. A time, too, to think about sharing with those in need.

Your church may be looking at mission overseas this year or some other focus for your Harvest reflections. At Church Urban Fund we focus on Tackling Poverty Together here in England. Through our network of partner projects and joint ventures with dioceses we are reaching some of the poorest people in England. Families that have genuinely been hit by the current economic climate, working families that need support that is more than a trip to the Food Bank. Trained partner project volunteers and staff are Tackling Poverty Together by offering support and advice as well as gifts of food; but more importantly offering personal contact to those who feel isolated and excluded from society.

If you would like to join us in Tackling Poverty Together this Harvest please download resources from our website from 15th August.

A new CURBS resource for 2014...
Several CURBS supporters have agreed to pilot a new resource titled 'Why Bother'. This CURBStone Kit is focussed on the theme of 'Why we bother with God and why God bothers with us' and has been based on our original 'Turning Point Kit' that was produced in 1998 and is no longer in print.
We hope to have the final product ready for you in early 2014 and the kit will be aimed at 5-11s and includes 7 sessions. Please get in touch with Kate if you can pilot this resource with your children and give us feedback by the end of 2013.

Are you connecting with children of other faiths? Come and meet others....

Following positive feedback from our 'Kids United' CURBS Kit we have planned an event which is aimed at Christians connecting with children of other faiths in their clubs/groups/assemblies. A key challenge for us at CURBS when faced with this situation was how to remain distinctively Christian whilst also respecting those of other faiths - not always an easy place to be!
After discussion with many of you living/ministering in multi-faith communities we have decided to host a day which will include a chance to share/meet others in this situation and also hear from 2 engaging speakers:
- Claire Clinton from Newham in London will be talking about 'What you need to know as a Christian when connecting with those of other faiths'. This is based on many years work as an RE Advisor and after school club volunteer.
- Andrew Smith from Birmingham with be talking about his reflections and learning from many years of youth/children's ministry with Muslims.
The event details are:
Date/Time: Saturday 23rd November 10-3pm
Location: Faithful Neighbourhoods Centre, Sparkhill, Birmingham
Cost: Free and will include a hot curry lunch...on us!
To book your place or find out more please contact Kate. Please also advertise to others in your area who might find this day of interest!

From our recent Trustees meeting...

Our newly formed Board of CURBS Trustees met for the first time in early July in Liverpool. We were hosted by our Liverpool HUB team and based at St Georges Church in Everton. We were really encouraged by their stories of church growth and the reality of ministry in this wonderful inner city community!
Some key decisions that came out of our time together were:
- to have a CURBS event in Hull in Spring 2014 (previously our annual Away Day) that would focus on 'nurturing and inspiring people on the ground'.
- to focus on getting our 'CURBS UNPACKED' reflective training course ready to 'train the trainer'
- to raise our profile through website improvements, social media and HUB development
- to make sure that stories of children's ministry in our tougher UK communities are shared to encourage and resource others
- to try and ensure our financial future is more sustainable

Want to get more involved with CURBS?
There are some great opportunities for you to get involved in our CURBS 'Teams' and use your skills and gifts to benefit Christians sharing God's love with children in more marginalised communities.
This can be as simple as being part of an email discussion or may involve you meeting up occasionally with others in the team....
We particularly need support in:
- Writing and developing resources
- Developing and delivering our training
- Promoting CURBS through publicity, website and marketing
You may also have specific skills that could really help - like Elaine who has recently offered to write songs/music that can accompany some of our resources as an optional extra!
Please get in contact with Kate if you would like to know more!

Fw: News from Acts 435

Subject: News from Acts 435

Issues of UK poverty have been prevalent in the news recently.  See my blog for how we are able to help people struggling with the additional cost of the so-called 'bedroom tax' and some reflections on how it must be for those facing it:


Here are a couple of relevant live request on the topic:


Just £100 needed for washing machine

'H' is on low income. She is struggling to pay the bedroom tax and council tax. Her washing machine has broken and she cannot afford to repair or replace it. Any contribution would be gratefully received.


Just £100 needed for man affected by the " bedroom tax"

This man receives Job Seekers Allowance. He lives alone in local authority housing. He has to pay more towards his rent because of the "bedroom tax". Church can support him for up to 3 months if he receives a grant by providing a household pack. He would then have a little more money to be able to pay the extra costs.


And one of several for food, in an area where there isn't a local Foodbank at this time to help:


Just £100 needed for food and basic essentials

Claudia has been a victim of domestic abuse perpetrated by her ex-partner. She has fled from North London and initially stayed with friends in South London. They are no longer able to help her. She was offered accommodation through YMCA today, but until her benefits application come through she has no food and no money to support herself. She is unable to return to her family in Portugal as well, as she has no means to travel there. Claudia was referred by the local domestic violence unit.


It is good to know that so many charities are out there trying to help those in need and campaigning on their behalf. 


Kind regards
