CSCA Celebrates Thanks Giving

CSCA celebrates thanks giving with the residents of David Henry Wearing Home Trust to mark Harvest on the 20th October 2012 in collaboration with The Bedfont Church

The CSCA celebrated Harvest on Saturday 20th October 2012. The event brought many multicultural and faith people together. Harvest is traditionally celebrated by churches and is a time when worshippers are asked to bring food to give away to people in need. This year, the CSCA as part of the initiative called A Year of Service encouraged people to come together to celebrate Harvest. The CSCA worked together with the Bedfont Church to create gift food boxes for the elderly Christian people at the David Henry Wearing Home in Feltham. The gift boxes contained important food supplies that are ideal to have during the winter period including boxes of soup, tea, sugar, pasta. The residents were very overwhelmed and grateful for their gifts.

The harvest programme allowed people from two major faiths to work together on such a noble cause to benefit important members of our community; the elderly and was a step in building social ties through such an important social action.

Volunteers from the CSCA spent the afternoon having tea and speaking with the residents at the David Henry Wearing Home about social issues that concerned them and how we could work on social events in the future to benefit them. One of CSCA’s objectives is to give people the opportunity to talk, make friends, and encourages positive relationships with people from different backgrounds and to reduce communal barriers that may have been created due to misconceptions.

Our aim is to build on shared values, cultural diversity, and religious acceptance. The CSCA strives to help bridge gaps in understanding amongst communities through various social actions and experiencing spiritual diversity. The CSCA promotes mutual respect and harmonious co-existence and promotes positive relationships with people from all faiths and no faith.

The CSCA will be organising many social action based programmes and everyone is most welcome to get involved. Please email info@spiritandculture.org.uk if you are interested in partaking in any of the programmes or activities we organise. We will be posting more details about specific programmes or activities near the time they take place.
