Christian Aid Week Sunday 13th May – Saturday 19th May
It is getting to that time of year again.

As last year each church will have an allocation of envelopes and we would ask as many people as possible to volunteer to collect house to house during the week. (It is too good a fundraiser to abandon it altogether). However for those who really cannot collect, for whatever reason, there will be an opportunity for them to help. We are having a stall in the Teanlowe each day – Monday to Friday of Christian Aid Week. Each church is to be responsible for the stall for one day. St. Martin’s & St. Hilda’s will start the week on market day and St. Chad’s will cover Thursday. The stall will have Christian Aid envelopes, collecting boxes and buckets. Volunteers should work in twos or threes perhaps for an hour during the day. We hope that this will give others the opportunity to help and give the public who do not receive an envelope the opportunity to support Christian Aid.

If you can do anything at all to help please see Jenny Sly or Tony Raymer at St. Chad’s and Elizabeth Harrison or Ann McCarthy at St. Hilda’s.

To celebrate the work of Christian Aid during the last 63 years and to encourage us for Christian Aid Week there will be a service at St. Martin’s and St. Hilda’s Church on Sunday afternoon 13th May at 3pm. There will be an open invitation to all Christians in the town to join us, to share worship and refreshment.

Christian Aid Week culminates with the Coffee Morning on Saturday 19th May 10am – 12noon. This will be held, this year, at the Methodist Church Hall. Please come along to support us.

Christian Aid believes in offering people across the world a life before death and this is as much needed now as it was 60 years ago!
