fighting global poverty
Christian Aid is a Christian Organisation that insists the world can and must be changed to one where everyone can live a full and happy life, free from poverty. They work globally for profound change that eradicates the causes of poverty, striving to achieve equality, dignity and freedom for all, regardless of faith or nationality. They are part of a wider movement for social justice. They provide urgent, practical and effective assistance where need is great, tackling the effects of poverty as well as its root causes.
Each year our fund raising activities for Christian Aid at St Andrew's focus during and around Christian Aid Week, which is held during May each year. This year we are planning envelope distribution in church and for friends, and public collections at B&M in Burnham. As part of our spiritual reflection on global poverty and the role of Christian Aid there will be prayer leaflets available in the church as well. The popular annual Christian Aid Quiz, which raised over £1100 last year, will be held in the Church Hall on 19th October.
