CHRISTIAN AID WEEK -13 – 19 May 2018

The annual Coffee Morning for the Benefice is to be at Morton.  It will be held in The Rectory Room on Friday 18th May between 10am to 12 noon.  There will be a raffle and a sales/book stall.  Please make a date in your diary to come and join us to support this very worthwhile charity.

Christian Aid has more than 70 years of experience working in partnership to support communities to grow, tackling the root causes of poverty so that men, women and children the world over are strengthened against unexpected disasters.

Christian Aid believes that everyone is equal in the sight of God.  Yet we live in a world where poverty still exists.  Poverty robs people of their dignity and lets injustice thrive, but by standing with people of all faiths and none the Charity enables them to stand up for dignity, equality and justice.
