Christian Aid Week 2021

 

Christian Aid Week this year is May 10th – 16th

Christian Aid exists to create a world where everyone can live a full life, free from poverty”

Unfortunately, during the past year none of the usual Christian Aid fundraising activities in Denbigh have been able to take place due to the coronavirus pandemic and although restrictions have eased somewhat, we feel it would be unwise to conduct the usual “house-to-house” collection this year.   However, the need to fight poverty and injustice remains  –  more so than ever –  so we would encourage everyone to support the vital work of Christian Aid by one of the following methods:-

  1. Using the “JustGiving” page

Christian Aid Week Prayer

Great God, Who makes the sun to rise, and opens the heavens,

Hear the cry of the people who sow in hope for rain, but reap only despair;

Hear the cry of the people seeking shelter from the storm, their hopes and homes submerged;

Hear the cry of the people, when creation is hitting back, with rage and resistance;

Give us hope, grant us salvation; give us a new relationship with creation;

with reverence to tend this gift from You and say once again of the earth and all you created  –

It is GOOD.

(Bob Kikuyu Global Theology Advisor, Christian Aid)

Christmas Lunch 2020 Update

On Christmas Eve, over 70 ‘care packages’ with a pre-cooked Christmas Dinner, trimmings and extra goodies, were delivered to people in and around Denbigh who would be on their own on Christmas Day.

This was a huge team effort and special thanks go to all the volunteers, generosity of local businesses and people who so kindly donated.

Hopefully Christmas 2021 will see us back together in St Thomas’s Church Hall for the annual Christmas Day Lunch. Until then, stay safe and many blessings to you all.

Christmas Day Lunch 2020 – Update

 

Due to Covid this year we are unable to hold our traditional Christmas Day lunch in the Church Hall.

Instead on Christmas Eve we will be delivering to 70 households, oven ready Christmas meals, with all the trimmings, together with full cooking instructions.

Our grateful thanks go to Sue of the Glass Onion, J.H. Jones the Butchers and ‘Eat Your Greens’, plus the many other volunteers and for all the kind donations we have received. We are unable to accept any further donations.

With all good wishes from the Christmas Day lunch team.
