Welcome

Shoebox Appeal - Yes, it is already that time of year again!

We are supporting the Samaritans Purse - Operation Christmas Child once again this year by asking as many of you as possible to fill a shoebox with gifts that will be sent to poverty-stricken children, The destination of boxes is to be confirmed but they are hoping to send some to Syria and possibly Kyrgyzstan.).

So, find an empty shoebox, cover in coloured paper, and decide on male/female and age range (2-4, 5-9, 10-14). Fill your box with a selection from each of these categories: Toys, Educational supplies, Hygiene Items, you can also include Hats, gloves, scarves, but no other clothing please. No Chocolate, NO playing cards (Hearts/Clubs type) but Happy Families, UNO, draughts etc. are OK. Marbles also OK. No hand knitted Toys. . A donation of £3 per box is required. Leaflets explaining more can be picked up from church.

Leaflets on how to fill your shoe box are now available in the foyer or look here.

You can bring your boxes to the Church Church on Friday 9.30am - 14.00pm or to any of our services that begin at 10:45am on Sundays.

The last opportunity to bring along a box will be at our a special Shoe Box Service on Sunday 19th November (10.45AM - Midday).

Please encourage family and friends to fill in a box and bring it along.

This is a great way of sending a message of love this Christmas to disadvantaged children around the world.

Happy wrapping!!
