Firm Roots Cancer Prayer Support Group meets on the first Tuesday evening of the month in St John the Baptist Church Hall, School Lane, Burscough, Lancashire L40 4AE, 6.30pm to 8.00pm. Anyone is welcome to attend a Firm Roots Cancer Prayer Support Group and come along for friendship, encouragement and to pray for families affected by cancer. People who join our prayer groups include those who have a cancer diagnosis, family and friends supporting someone through cancer and oncology staff. People from all different denominations attend and we also welcome people who do not attend church or are unsure about faith, but who would like to receive prayer and encouragement as they go through cancer. Our groups consist of coffee and cake time, a Bible theme/short talk, quiet space to pray, group discussion and group prayers. Each group meets monthly and has a prayer list for local people affected by cancer. Do feel free to contact the group and ask them to pray for you, even if you cannot make the meetings. Please see the website for more information www.firmroots.org.uk. Also please email Helen.Jones@firmroots.co.uk if you might be interested in setting up a new Firm Roots Cancer Prayer Support Group in your area. Aside from the support group, Firm Roots also has a Volunteer Service (launched in September 2015). We have a team of trained volunteers who are offering befriending and practical support – such as meal delivery, ironing, shopping, cleaning, gardening – to families affected by cancer. People must live in Burscough or have a Burscough GP in order to receive help from the volunteer service. The volunteer service is currently undergoing a six month pilot and it is hoped that the service will be expanded beyond Burscough after this time, in partnership with Macmillan.
