Christian Aid Needs You!

Christian Aid Week takes place from 10-16 May this year and as usual here in Langford we'll be starting the week with a joint Anglican/Methodist service held at 9.15am on Sunday 10th May at St Andrew's: please come along and join us as we renew our commitment to helping some of the world's poorest people.

Small Change, Big Difference: Christian Aid Collecting Box 2015

This year we're taking a different approach to our fundraising: you could say it's a small change but it's one with a big difference — rather than house-to-house collections, we're inviting members of both churches to take envelopes and/or collecting boxes home then, as well as keep one for themselves, give them out to friends and neighbours. Envelopes and collecting boxes are now available at both St Andrew's and the Methodist Chapel and we hope that by giving people the opportunity to save their small change over a longer period, we'll increase awareness of Christian Aid's work and see a big difference in the total collected.

Andy Godfrey, Christian Aid's Regional Coordinator, joined us at this week's planning meeting to introduce this year's campaign. Thanks to Andy both churches also have copies of Christian Aid's introductory booklet, Let Us Love: Our work in the world, and the latest Count Your Blessings Lent leaflets, which offer bite-size daily reflections to inspire us to give thanks for the blessings in our lives and suggest things we can do to help transform lives — our own and other people's.

Andy will be back with us on Tuesday 12th May for a Christian Aid Lunch in St Andrew's Church Hall: please keep an eye on our Services and Events page for more details nearer the time.
