Lunchtime Event on Tuesday 16 September 2014, 12 noon – 2pm
Stockton Baptist Tabernacle, The Square, Stockton-on-Tees TS18 1TE
An interactive workshop on the benefits of chaplaincy in the workplace.
Northeast chaplaincy agencies Tees Valley Ministry and Northumbrian Industrial Mission will be seeing more of each other in future.
The neighbours have recognised a common goal “to support the development of workplace chaplaincy across the North East of England.”
By signing a statement of collaboration at their recent Management Group meetings they committed to collaborating for mutually benefit, initially by:
meeting together at a strategic level
attending each other’s management group meetings
staff and chaplains meeting regularly
working together to train Chaplains
making joint applications for funding ….. MORE
Churches in the North East of England will shortly see a transition in the way they collaborate. The decision to set-up NECAT (North East Churches Acting Together) will also bring to a close the CRC (Churches' Regional Commission in the North East).
To mark the occasion CRC has set-out a summary of its legacy and lessons over twenty years, in a report: 'Faith in Action Together.'
The highly readable format typifies CRC's approach to making things happen in the ways in which it has carried-out its aim, 'to help churches engage with industry, commerce and society; and to ensure that the initiatives were effective and co-ordinated.'
Through partnerships it has worked with a range of public bodies; and helped to establish a regional Faiths Network.

Read Draft Modern Slavery Bill published by UK Parliament
The Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby has welcomed the publication today of the report and draft Bill by the Parliamentary Joint Select Committee on Modern Slavery.
‘I strongly welcome the report and draft Bill published today by the Parliamentary Joint Select Committee on Modern Slavery….
I very much hope that the Home Office, as it prepares to publish its own Bill on Modern Slavery, will take the Committee’s recommendations extremely seriously. These include putting the rights of victims at the heart of the Bill; including effective provisions to recognise the increased vulnerability of children; and a clause that would encourage quoted companies to do more to ensure that their supply chains are free from slave labour. The Home Office has been a leader in the field of tackling modern slavery, and the determination of their approach is notable’
Mark Saunders tells his story of coming to faith from a background of football violence and why, with weeks to live, he's not afraid to die.
A Man With A Mission
Colin Worswick’s chaplaincy at Teesport was featured in the December edition of Now & Then magazine (issue no 86, pages 48-50). As port chaplain for the Mission to Seafarers he has been welcoming people from all over the world to Teesside since 2001. Support for the ships’ crews, at one of the country’s busiest ports, is another way in which chaplains contribute to the life of the Tees Valley.
Information about the Mission to Seafarers can be found at http://www.missiontoseafarers.org
As if you hadn't noticed, Christmas is coming: a busy time for shop workers as well as shoppers. During the Church's Advent season, the traditional time of preparation for Christmas, TVM Chaplains have been busy out and about to make a real difference.
Newton Aycliffe will be benefiting from work put in by our Town Centre Chaplain to prepare for the Christmas period. Regular visiting throughout the year by Pam Lovelass has improved communications between traders and contractors, to progress the regeneration of the shopping precinct.
Our Asda Chaplains have been improving community links in other ways. Jan Barrett is volunteering with the local Foodbank, which collects at the store where she serves staff on behalf of TVM.
As the former I.T. Support for the group I am recreating their web page as an archive.
