In 2018, the Parish raised over £8,000, plus the £5,000 matched funding from the Overseas Aid & Development Commission in support of our Lenten appeal. Therefore this year’s Advent appeal will be to support Aid for the Church in Need (ACNUK). To support their work with persecuted Christian community’s especially in the Middle East.
At Christmas we focus on the Infant Child, born in a stable, a temporary shelter far from his home. By giving either £25 for a Christmas parcel or £45 for a food parcel, each of us can celebrate Christmas in the safety and security of our homes knowing we have helped other families in desperate need because of war and conflict. Special envelopes will be available in the churches from the First Sunday of Advent.
