Prayer Shall

Members of the Hearts and Hands group (and associated 'crafters' who join in from home and Holcroft Grange) have completed many projects including: hand puppets for Warrington Hospital children's ward, blankets for the palliative care unit at Manchester Hospital, hats for Mission to Seafarers, items for the Christmas shoeboxes plus the knitted Bible stories and poppies displays.

We have just embarked on a new project which will involve creating prayer shawls, wraps, blankets, scarves, or other appropriate items, to be given to those who need comfort or to commemorate special occasions (weddings/births/baptisms). We would welcome your contributions to this project in many ways: creating the items, providing/financing wool, praying blessings over the project and items created, packaging the items or making cards/writing notes to accompany them (we expect other avenues to develop too).

For more information, please contact Caroline Fillery, Janette Hutchinson or Viv Briney.

"Shawls...made for centuries, universal and embracing, symbolic of an inclusive, unconditional loving God. They wrap, enfold, comfort, give solace, mother, hug, shelter and beautify. Those who have received these shawls have been uplifted and affirmed. " (Janet Bristow:www.shawlministry.com )
