Christian Aid Week this year will be from the 13th to 19th May 2018. Our theme will be “Providing life-saving new homes to poor communities at risk from disasters”.
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.
There will be more in-depth information in the April & May issues of the Parish Magazine, but in the meantime we would be very grateful if you would “Save the date” for the following events:
Tuesday 15th May – 09:00 – 11:00am: Street Collection
Tuesday 15th May – 10:30am – 12:00noon: Coffee Morning in the Barber Rooms
Saturday 19th May – 7.00pm: Concert at All Saints’
As well as the Street Collection, we will also be doing the House-to-House Collection during Christian Aid week and it would be much appreciated if you would consider volunteering to help with this or any of our other events. If you would like any further information please contact:
