CCS annual appeal

This weekend is the annual  appeal for CCS which celebrates 110 years of caring for vulnerable children.  This impressive anniversary is testimony to the continued support of our Diocesan Community and the vital role you all play in helping their work to continue.

If you or anyone you know is interested in adoption, CCS would love to hear from you.  A wide range of families are needed for the children waiting and CCS can offer an adoption service that has been repeatedly judged ‘Outstanding in all areas’ by Ofsted. To find our more about CCS please follow this link to visit their website.

Please support CCS with your prayers and your donations and if you use social media, please like them on Facebook and follow them on Twitter so that more people will hear about their work and consider the vocation of adoptive parenthood.

 110th Anniversary Prayer

Abba, Father,
you have ever shown your special love for the little ones of the world, for the lost and abandoned, for the wounded and forsaken.

Inspire us by your Holy Spirit to be communities and families of healing and new beginnings, so that more of us will welcome into our homes and hearts your little ones who long for a place of true belonging.

We pray for the work of Clifton Children’s Society, for adopted children & adults, their families & children in care waiting for adoption.

Through Jesus Christ, our Lord and Brother
