Saturday 9 June - A short Pentecost Communion Service follows the 10.30am service.
Hum-a-Hymn - Sundays 2, 9, 16, 23, 30 June at 10.10am
Do you enjoy singing in church? But have you found that it is only in the last verse of a hymn that you begin to get to know the tune and sing out confidently? Would you like to be more confident right from the start?
If so, why not come along to Hum-a-Hymn? For the month of June, each Sunday, Tal will be at the piano in the Hall from 10.10am playing through the hymns of the day.
Do drop in any time before the service starts and simply hum along, or try out adding the words whenever you are ready. Informal, relaxed and enjoyable!
Wednesday 5 June : 7.30pm : Life of the Church Meeting
An opportunity for members and friends of the church to talk together about important issues affecting our lives.
On this occasion, we shall look at both the long tradition of civil disobedience practised within our own liberal religious movement and then to connect this with the type of action being carried out by Extinction Rebellion (XR).
Wednesday 26 June - 1pm at Westminster - Climate Coalition Mass Lobby of Parliament
I attach details of the Climate Coalition's mass lobby of parliament. Christian Aid and XR are both involved. Rosemary Watson is planning to go and will be joining the Christian Aid group in Trafalgar Square in the morning before the lobby, which itself is from 1.00 p.m.
Daniel Zeichner MP has said that he will come out to meet the Cambridge contingent. If you are a voter in a constituency outside Cambridge city, you might like to ask your MP is he or she will be there.
If anyone else from the church is thinking of going, they can get in touch with Rosemary by email so we can arrange to meet up.
Sunday 30 June - 10.30am service
The Revd Madelyn Campbell will be known to some of you since 2018 thanks to her occasional visits to this congregation from the USA for her DMin course at Wesley House.
Madelyn is a Unitarian Universalist minister (currently at Channing Memorial Church in Ellicott City, Maryland) a biblical storyteller (the only certified Unitarian Universalist biblical storyteller) and one of only seventeen military chaplains in the UUA serving as the Chaplain in the Winchester Composite Squadron of the Civil Air Patrol, U.S. Air Force Auxiliary.
Madelyn has kindly offered to take the service on Sunday 30th June and we very much look forward to welcoming her.
Living Wage Employer
I am happy to tell you that our application to be recognised as a Living Wage Employer has been approved by the Living Wage Foundation.
Rosemary Watson writes: "The Real Living Wage is important to us as a faith community because we are aware that Cambridge is one of the most in-equal places in the country with, for example, high use of the Foodbank, often by people who are in work. We consider becoming accredited for a Real Living Wage is a way of influencing change, and want to encourage other institutions to become accredited also".
