Lent and Easter Giving

Famine in East Africa

In response to requests from the congregation our Lent and Easter giving this year will go to support East African Famine relief.

In South Sudan, Somalia, Kenya and Ethiopia people are on the brink of starvation. “Hunger on a massive scale is looming across East Africa. More than 800,000 children under five are severely malnourished. Without urgent treatment, they are at risk of starving to death,” The UK Disasters Emergency Committee Chief Executive, Saleh Saeed, said.

Our collection will be sent to All We Can (formerly the Methodist Relief and Development Fund). All We Can has already begun working with its international humanitarian aid partners to respond to the immediate urgent needs in South Sudan and Somalia.

Envelopes for your gifts are available in the church and the collection will continue until Easter Sunday.

In all the ways you can, In all the places you can,
At all the times you can, To all the people you can
As long as ever you can!”  John Wesley
