Christian Aid 10th - 16th May 2021

Christian Aid week 10th to 16th May 2021 St Mary’s West Chiltington

Hi to all members of the congregation. I hope you are well and looking forward to the end of the lockdown restrictions and a more normal summer season.

Christian Aid week is happening shortly before the next restriction ends and we are therefore having to ask for your support once again by requesting your donations are sent directly online via the Christian Aid website.

Many of the people who benefit from Christian Aid donations are from poor communities who suffer disproportionately from climate change and pandemics and cannot rely on much help from their central government. Their need has seldom been greater.

We would like to continue our annual commitment by raising as much as possible.

Simply Google Christian Aid week on your computer/ phone or follow the link below and you will get the Christian Aid website which explains how money raised gets used to support people like Rose in the video link who has to carry plastic barrels of water home for herself and her family just to survive, and has seen her quality of life worsen due to the impact of climate change.

For church members who have access to the internet the process of giving is very easy. For those who don’t we’d be delighted to hear from you so that we can organise an easy way to make a payment.

If you qualify as a UK taxpayer please use the Gift Aid facility on the website to increase your donation by 25%.

Thank you in anticipation of your support.

Many thanks and God bless. Jim Jarvie, Ali Littleboy, Father Stephen Merriman
