Rachel’s Vineyard Retreat in June

April 22, 2017

The next Rachel’s Vineyard retreat in the West of Scotland will take place in June (13th-15th). This is a retreat for those who have been involved with abortion and are struggling afterwards. Open to women who have had abortions themselves, men who have lost a child through abortion, anyone who has been involved in an abortion decision (for example friends or family members) and healthcare workers who have taken part in abortion. Through companionship, prayer and activities based on passages of scripture, this retreat takes you on a journey from despair to hope. It is amazing to see the transformation that takes place in those who attend the retreats. The retreats are Christian based but are open to people of all faiths and no faith.

There is more information on the Rachel’s Vineyard website http://www.rachelsvineyard.org.uk

If anyone would like to go on the retreat, please get in touch with Sr Andrea (phone: 07816 942824, email: sisterandrea@rachelsvineyard.org.uk). All contact is kept confidential.

Also please keep this retreat in your prayers- that those who are hurt by abortion will be brave enough to come and seek healing and will apply to come on the retreat, that the team leading the retreat will be blessed in their preparations and that God will work in the hearts of all those involved.

40 Days For Life Finale

April 12, 2017

Congratulations to the many people who took part in this year’s 40 Days for Life campaign, especially Rose and her team of leaders, who devoted themselves full-time to ensure that the 40 day vigil ran smoothly no matter what the weather. What a wonderful witness they have been to the value of the life of the unborn and that women need loving support in their difficulties, rather than abortion.

The vigil came to an end on Saturday evening, with a candlelit silent hour of prayer. In Glasgow, 118 people took part in this last hour.

There was a closing event on Sunday afternoon- with pro-life speakers in George Square.

Let us continue to pray for an end to abortion, in this the 50th year of the Abortion Act.
