Christian Aid Week 2022

'Bring, Share, Support'

Saturday 21st May, 11am-1pm

This year, the focus of Christian Aid Week is on vulnerable families who are pushed into hunger by droughts and the increased effects of the climate crisis. Get involved and help raise money for this cause by coming along to St Mary's on Saturday 21st May, 11am - 1pm. There will be:

  • Lunch - soup and a roll, tea, coffee and biscuits

  • Table top sale / swap

  • Quiz - come meet and chat!

Help needed

  • Any offers of homemade soup or for help on the day will be gratefully received. Please see Marion after the 10am service on Sunday, or phone 0191 2524845.

  • We need volunteers to distribute 'postcards' to houses in the parish - just delivering, so much quicker and easier than doing envelopes! You can collect cards on Sunday after the service
