Christian Aid Cafe church

We’re very grateful to all those who made a donation at February’s café service. A total of £530 was received (Including gift aid). Your gifts demonstrate our willingness to stand in solidarity for justice, equality and dignity with our global neighbours.

The local Christian Aid group are preparing for this year’s Christian Aid week. Every Christian Aid Week, people across Britain and Ireland raise funds, act and pray united in hope for a fairer world.

This year’s appeal runs from May 12th to 18th and is focussing on the organisation’s work in Burundi, one of the most densely populated and poorest countries in Africa. There will be more information about the project we are featuring in next month’s Signpost.

This Christian Aid Week (from May 12th to 18th) supporters are once more stepping up, knowing that every prayer, every gift, every action helps transforms lives. You can be part of the team fundraising or taking on your fundraising challenge

There are seven days and so many ways to make a difference – find out all the ways you can support Christian Aid Week by visiting the Christian Aid website.
