Christian Aid Week 2018 – Mission of the month

Christian Aid Week this year will be from the 13th to 19th May 2018. Our theme is “Together, we are Stronger than Storms” which focuses on the plight of people worldwide facing relentless earthquakes, storms and hurricanes.

In Haiti, seven years on from the devastating earthquake, an estimated 38,000 people are still displaced and more than 40 million people globally are internally displaced but we rarely hear their stories. What’s more they’re often ignored or forgotten by governments. But even if the world has forgotten them, Christian Aid has not. As we come together for this Christian Aid Week, the fight for justice for these people will continue.

Christian Aid stands with the most vulnerable and excluded people of the world – both in times of crisis and for the longer term. They give people survival essentials when they are without shelter or refuge, and help them find the strength and resources they need to flourish and protect themselves from disasters. They support people to stand up for their rights and to build stable, secure lives they can enjoy living.

This year’s events are as follows and if you would like any further information, please contact Julie Campbell on  242 589.

However we are able to support Christian Aid, we’re united in our belief that the world can and must be changed and that we are each called to love our neighbours, every one of our fellow human beings, wildly, wholeheartedly and sacrificially. This is our mission, this is the Jesus mission.

Let’s live it out this Christian Aid Week!
