GENERAL INFORMATION

 

 

 

ACCOMMODATION FOR REFUGEES

 

Churches Together in Poole is now supporting three families from Syria who have found refuge in Poole. They'd like to do more but desperately need accommodation. Please help by asking your congregation:  Do you own a property which you could let out? Might you be willing to consider accepting a rent which is lower than the market rent in order to provide for a refugee family. Please contact the Rev Michael Camp: 01202 801802: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..

 

CHAPLAINCY POST BEING ADVERTISED

 

Congratulations to Mrs Sue Coleman (LLM Winchester Diocese) and Chaplain at MHA Maidment Court in Poole for a recent appointment as Regional Chaplaincy Advisor for MHA over part of the south of England.   This will involve less of her time at her current post, and having to reduce her hours to deal with her new role, and an advertisement is now current and available on the MHA website for another Chaplain for the complex.  The Chaplain’s post is a permanent part time placement for 20 hours a week, lay or ordained person, and salary and other matters are included in the official advertisement.   More information is available also from Peter Slee at This email address is being protected from spambots.
