Commencing 10th December



 


To think about...

The Bible is God's revelation to humankind containing His great truths about man, history and salvation.  It can be trusted just as if God had taken the pen and written the words Himself.  

Jim Cymbala

Special Christmas Gift to Tearfund

We support Tearfund as a church and they have informed us that the UK government has a special scheme whereby for every £1 given during December and January they will match it with another £1.

Feeling that this is an opportunity not to miss, we are inviting you to give whatever you can to Tearfund and be delighted that the exact equal amount will be added on top!  What a great idea!

Four years of brutal conflict; one million people who’ve fled their homes; two million without enough to eat; in the Central African Republic it can seem like there’s no hope – but there is, and it comes from those who have suffered most!  Women who have been brutalised and left to cope are determined to flourish, but they need your support.

Tearfund has set up a new programme in the Central African Republic (CAR) to help the most vulnerable affected by conflict.  More than half of the country’s 4.6 million population are in urgent need of food, water, sanitation and healthcare.  Wonderfully, every pound given by you to this appeal will be matched by the UK Government.

So, to make it easy for us all to join in, our offering on Sunday 17th December will be given entirely to Tearfund.  WE are ordering special envelopes, but it will apply to all money placed in the offering that day – so please bear that in mind.  Thankyou.
