A huge thank you to everyone who attended our Thanksgiving & Celebration Service to mark our golden anniversary on the 6th November! We've had a brilliant year reflecting on TfG's journey, and pray the next 50 years will be just as life changing for our volunteers, placements and staff. As we move towards a time of new beginnings, please know that we are immensely grateful for your continued support and prayers. 
It was brilliant to see so many from around the world come and give thanks for 50 years of volunteering at our service in London!

Just some (of the many!) highlights included a testimony from TfG's founder Rev. Bryan Gilbert, talks from Rev. David Howell and Ray Lewis, live music from some of our current volunteers and speeches from our overseas partners. 

A big thank you to everyone who came and of course St Peter's Church in Notting Hill for allowing us to use their beautiful Church! 
Blessings as you move on

At the beginning of November, Time for God attended the EDYN conference in London. It was a brilliant chance to catch up with many of our international partners and discuss the growth of our volunteering programmes.
Anneke and Anastasiia, who volunteer at Morley Community Church, laid their wreaths at both the Remembrance Sunday Parade in Morley and at an afternoon ceremony in Tingley.

Anneke laid wreaths on behalf of her home town of Kasse in Germany, which was almost totally destroyed in RAF bombing raids in WW2. Whilst Anastasiia laid wreaths on behalf of her home town of Odessa in Ukraine, remembering civilian casualties from wartime sieges (Odessa was surrounded and besieged in WW2 by the Nazis and eventually overrun, with great loss of life).

They were also given the fantastic opportunity to meet serving soldiers, Royal British Legion staff and their local Mayor and MP!

A huge thank you to Morley and Tingley for welcoming Anneke and Anastasiia into your community, and for allowing them to experience the importance of shared remembrance in British culture.
We are accepting applications to four new country placements!  For more information, visit our website.
 
"Sharing our cultures with one another enriches worship. Regardless of our cultural differences, we are a family"
Father GodAn exciting time of year is coming: Advent and Christmas. Today we pray for the volunteers across the world who are far from home and missing their families and familiar traditions. May their communities embrace them and make them feel at home. We pray that though our diaries will get busier, we remember the importance and wonder of the birth of Jesus. Let us reach towards each other for support, comfort, and guidance. Amen.
