Its that time of year again, when we launch Operation Christmas Child. This year we are aiming to beat last year’s total of 100 boxes, please help us!

Pick up your empty shoebox from the back of both churches this weekend, along with a packing guide. Decide what age group and gender you would like to pack for, then off you go! Please don’t forget the £5 administration donation, then bring the filled box back to us by Sunday 10 November.

Please note we are not allowed to pack sweets this year. This is a great way to spread some Christmas happiness to those children for whom Christmas time is more a matter of survival than celebration. Watch these videos to see just how much these boxes mean to the children who receive them.
