Christian Aid 2020

christian-aid

Next week sees Christian Aid Week 2020. Normally Christian Aid week sees house to house collections, and various fundraising actvities, all of which are not possible at this time. However there are some ways that you can support Christian Aid.

We need to think about.... A World in a time of Coronavirus and Climate Change

'Love never fails. Coronavirus impacts all of us. But love unites us all'
As this virus spreads across the world, love rises up in response.
You've already shown incredible kindness to your neighbours.
Now is the time to reach out to your neighbours both near and far.

Your love protects. From storms, from drought, and now from coronavirus.
Your love protects our global neighbours battling the spread of this illness.
Your love protects. With soap, clean water and medical supplies.

We might be locked down and feeling isolated but we are not alone.
God's world is still hurting and people are still suffering.
Has this last month given you the time to reflect?
If coronavirus can do this to us, what will Climate Change do?
Wanting to call politicians to account?
By supporting us this Christian Aid Week, you can reach out
and protect more of your global neighbours today.

What can you do?
