Christmas ‘Charitable’ Giving 2021

Our Christmas charitable giving, mainly through the collection at the ‘Lessons and Carols’ Service, has in the past been split between local and global projects.

This year, as every year, we will support the very local project CAFÉ- STRICH- PUNKT
This association seeks to support those young people who have need of such support, often in very practical ways. This requires funding and also those able and willing to do voluntary work. The support can be online or in real time. It can be as immediate as being homeless, or as long term as relationship based support like bridge building back into families.  There is street work and consultation, drop-in and medical help and advice, plus more than can be listed.
This is a very local work that we as good neighbours have supported for a long time in partnership with other churches.

The global project this year is TACKLING POVERTY IN SRI LANKA
Throughout Advent and Christmas 2021 we will be standing in solidarity with our partner Church in Sri Lanka, The Church of Ceylon. Their vital work with women and children from the tea plantation communities is transforming lives and lifting people out of poverty. Join us in supporting Sri Lanka’s most vulnerable communities.
