Operation Christmas Child 2017

Every year the Samaritans Purse charity invites people of all ages to fill a shoe box with gifts. The charity then arranges for these boxes to be delivered by hand by local overseas partners to some of the poorest children in the world – regardless of their nationality, political or religious background.

If you are able to donate a box please take an instruction leaflet from the front of the church. Ready decorated flat pack boxes are available, Please ask the Stewards.

Please bring your filled boxes to church on either 5, 12 or 19 November and leave it on the table in the hall. Bring joy and a smile to a needy child this Christmas.
Our church has been donating boxes since 2003 when 23 were given one year we managed to send  41 boxes.
