Anniversary cycle challenge for Parish Nursing Ministries UK   

Baptist minister the Revd Dr Helen Wordsworth and husband Robert are attempting a 900 mile cycle challenge in May to raise money for Parish Nursing Ministries UK  


Helen Wordsworth700The challenge is inspired by the combination a number of significant anniversaries, explained Helen, of Park Road Baptist Church in Peterborough.
‘Peterborough Cathedral is 900 years old this year, the NHS is 70, and they are celebrating 40 years of marriage!

‘We wanted to find a way of doing this that would benefit others and link all three special anniversaries.'
Helen said that any support that can be given would be very welcome, either by talking about Parish nursing with Christian nurses that you know, praying for the work, and/or by sponsoring Helen and Robert on this rather adventurous challenge. 
By doing so ‘you will be helping someone else to have the benefit of a Parish nurse, offering them spiritual care alongside health and wellness interventions, from a local church or Christian organisation,’ she added. 

The aim of the charity is to grow to 220 churches with Parish Nursing services by 2020: in order to do this they need to find more ways of letting people know just how effective this ministry is as a mission and outreach initiative.
