Christian Aid

 

Christian Aid

Christian Aid Week is from 14th – 20th May and we are looking for collectors to help with the door to door collection.
The Christian Aid working group have decided to concentrate our fund rising to the Kelpie Canter sponsored walk 0n 30th September.
However if anyone wants to walk on the Bridge Walk again this year, on 22nd April, then Sue Storrar has sponsor forms.

Thanks for your continuing support.

 

Knitting for HIV affected babies

Thank you to everyone who has responded so positively to our knitting project for babies in Africa affected by the HIV virus.
Could all completed jumpers and hats please be brought to church by Easter Sunday 16th April, so that they can be sent away to charities in Africa.

Thanks Sue Storrar.

 

Christian Aid Report 2016

 

The theme for Christian Aid last year was ‘LOVE EVERY NEIGHBOUR’

Taken from John 15:12 ‘ My command is this: Love each other as I have loved you.’

Once again the members of Haggs Parish Church, and our friends in the parish, have demonstrated their love for their neighbours by giving generously to Christian Aid during 2016.

The magnificent sum of £2,782.41 was raised from a variety of activities, including our participation in the new sponsored family event – ‘The Kelpie Canter’ at the Helix Park in August.

 

This year’s donation came from the following:-

Bridge Walk                                                                £892.00

Lunches                                                                      £350.02

Kelpie Canter                                                              £133.25

Door-to-door collection                                                 £1,052.48

Donations                                                                   £158.04

Watchnight Service collection                                      £196.44

Your acts of love – giving, praying and fundraising – have helped support your neighbours near and far.

Thank you for your continuing support.
