Mission of the month for May – Christian Aid

Christian Aid Week: the week we love every neighbour

Picture a young mother of four. Her husband has left. She has no land. No assets. No savings. And the only work she can get is backbreaking manual labour for as little as 74p a day. Her home has been flooded several times, and last August it flooded again. This is Morsheda. She’s our neighbour, and she desperately needs our help.

From 15th -21st May, All Saints’, Faringdon and St Mary’s, Little Coxwell will join with more than 20,000 others across the country for the sake of people like Morsheda.

Sunday 15th May

9.00am:   Morning Service at St Mary’s
