Author to speak about hope at Edinburgh service
Kate Strickland-Wright is the National Development Officer and Manager for Pause for Hope – a national charity which enables ecumenical services throughout the UK for all those affected by cancer. Pause for Hope services are open to all, of any faith or none.
As a published author, Kate had her book A Prayer Companion Through Cancer (Kate Strickland) released in April 2018 and has worked for Pause for Hope since October 2019. Kate is working to expand the charity and its prayer initiative into new areas of the UK with ecumenical services in cathedrals and parish churches to help even more people affected by cancer. Kate has been interviewed by BBC Radio Merseyside, Premier Christian Radio and UCB (United Christian Broadcasters) and her book was recently listed in the top 300 for popular medicine and top 1000 for Christian books and Bibles on Amazon.
Bishop of Liverpool Paul Bayes endorsed Kate’s book as “a collection of prayers that should help people at all stages of the journey with cancer.”, while Rev Dr Sarah Baker says “The prayers in this book are hard won. Dip into this pool and take the water of healing and refreshment you need.” Bishop Paul concludes “In this book Kate has brought a lived experience to God, and the result is a collection of prayers that should help people at all stage of the journey with cancer. Honest, hopeful and – yes – joyful in the face of darkness and pain, it points us to the cross, and to the life eternal that the cross has won for us all.”
Kate will be talking about hope at the Edinburgh service and welcomes all who can attend to join them on Sunday 15th September at the Church of the Sacred Heart, 28 Lauriston Street, Edinburgh, EH3 9DJ at 3p.m. organised by Mr Andrew Cassidy.
