Time for Thought

Time for Thought - A Review

‘Time for Thought’ is the new resource created by URCGSF, and companion to ‘Time for Prayer’.  This pocket-sized booklet offers 24 themed reflection and prayer ideas for use with Guides and Scouts, children and young people.  It will be invaluable to leaders who want to offer a spiritual dimension to their groups and activities.  It is designed to link with themes and experiences that will be part of their normal programme, and will enable them to deepen their engagement and offer a faith perspective.  We have been delighted to be able to give a copy to every URC church with links to Guiding or Scouting, and hope this will enable many more people to connect with the URCGSF.

Silver wolves

The Silver Wolf. Each year those in Scouting who are awarded the Silver Wolf are invited to attend the National Scout and Guide Service of Celebration and Thanksgiving in November at Westminster Abbey. This is followed by a Reception at a venue near Westminster Abbey. In 2019 the venue was the Members Dining Room in the Palace of Westminster.

In 2019 two very long standing members of the URCGSF were awarded the Silver Wolf Trevor Flanders from Lewisham and Pam Marshall-Jones from Caterham. We all welcomed the opportunity to meet up.
