It was great to welcome nearly 40 people to the CICS Supporters Evening at The Engine Room Cafe in Dean Clough. The evening included our Annual General Meeting, stories from our schools workers, contributions from Scripture Union and local church communities. We also heard plans for 20 CICS events in 2020 starting on Sunday 2nd February with Halifax Young Singers in concert at Christ Church, Pellon.
Below are a few pictures from the evening, the various papers that made up the Annual Report and an article for church magazines.

This is an invitation to join us at the launch event of our 20th Anniversary Celebration!
CICS (Christians in Calderdale Schools) was born as a result of a millennium vision for young people in Calderdale, so the year 2020 is our 20th anniversary.
To launch our celebrations we are arranging a concert with
The Halifax Young Singers
Sunday February 2nd 2020 at 3pm at Christ Church Pellon Halifax
Tickets £8 & £6 (children and concessions)
Tickets can be obtained from firstname.lastname@example.org or at the door.
Can we take this opportunity to ask you and your church to pray for CICS as we seek God’s way forward for our celebration year and on into the future? With the help of our supporters we hope to put on other events during 2020. So far we have a Quiz Night and Garden Party & BBQ promised. If you of your church could offer a prayer event, fund or profile raising event please contact us.
Just to let you know what you would be supporting here are a few of the events and people who have featured in the year 2018/19
Chris Mason and Sarah Stone work part time in schools around the Halifax/Brighouse area and Nancy White in the Todmorden area.

In schools exciting things are happening:
CICS was a Churches Together vision and we cannot continue without our supporters and the church in Calderdale. So thank you for finding room in your magazine for this article. Please add your prayers for the future to ours and thank you in advance for any help you can give.
