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:-
- Using the “JustGiving” page
Clicking on this link also gives information about the work of Christian Aid.
- Donating via the local committee account
Bank: HSBC UK, Denbigh.
Sort Code: 40-19-12
Account number: 01012118
Account name: Cymorth Cristionogol – Cangen Dinbych
- Contacting Pat who will collect any cash donations.
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)
