Mission of the Month for May – Christian Aid

Christian Aid Week 14th-20th May

Christian Aid Week this year will be from the 14th to 20th May. Our theme will be “Refugees all around the World”.Christian Aid Week started 60 years ago to support the work that Christian Aid was doing with refugees in Europe in the aftermath of the Second World War. The situation then seemed every bit as challenging as the refugee crisis now.

Christian Aid week remains a massive movement of people today, uniting 20,000 churches to demonstrate Jesus’ justice. Today 65 million people across the globe have fled their homes because of disasters and conflict and do not have a safe place to call home.

During Christian Aid Week we are holding the following events:

  • Sunday 14th May   Cake Sale after the 10.30am service at All Saints’
  • Tuesday 16th May  Street Collection from 9.00 to 11.00am in Faringdon and Coffee Morning from 10.30am to 12.30pm in the Barber Rooms
  • Saturday 20th May “Instruments & Voices” Concert from 7.00pm at All Saints’
  •  All week from 14th to 20th May – House-to-House Collection, with an alternative “Delivery Only” option for this year.

We would welcome your support whether it is through baking, volunteering or buying a cake, a cup of coffee or a ticket to the concert.
