Christian Aid Week 2015: 10 - 16 May



LET’S LAUNCH CHRISTIAN
AID BY SHOWING FAITH
ON THE DOORSTEP

Sheila Waring, our Christian Aid
representative, writes…

It’s the start of Christian Aid Week and I am praying that our usual band of stalwarts will be joined by others who are willing to take a pack of envelopes for distribution. Last year, despite online means of donating, we still raised a total of well over £850 at St Hildeburgh's Church.

I know that some of our team have occasionally called at a home where the resident has been unpleasant and they are unwilling to try again. Last year I found that a smile, a ‘Thank you’ and a ‘God bless you’ gave them pause for thought.

Surely our faith is strong enough to go out into the community on behalf of the world’s poorest – our way of showing local folk that St Hilde­burgh’s is a caring community will­ing to support our global family. A vol­un­teer wrote, ”One of the big strengths of the charity is that it gives you the chance to put some­thing that matters to you into action.”

Last year Christian Aid helped people to find their own solutions, not only to poverty but also in their fight against social injustice. There have been responses to emergen­cies in Syria, Iraq and now Nepal, and govern­ments have been persuaded to spend more on critical help.
As Jesus reminds us: In as much as you do it for one of the least of these, you do it for me – Matthew 25:45.
