Christmas Shoe Boxes

Shoe Box
Operation Christmas Child

We were pleased to Welcome David and Iris of the Samaritan Purse Charity who took part in the Morning Service on Sunday 20th October. Telling us more about how the Shoe boxes distribution to needy Children thoughtout the World works.

“Thank you for not forgetting us”

Parents of needy youngsters have sent the above message to those people who have made up and sent gift filled shoeboxes to the countries of Eastern Europe and Africa.

Many of these parents can hardly afford to feed and clothe their children, let alone buy them presents for Christmas, but thanks to your generosity thousands of these children have received a brightly wrapped shoebox filled with presents to make the festive season special.

Our church has been donating boxes since 2003 when 23 were given – last year that number had risen to 39 boxes.

If you are able to donate this year please bring your box along on Sunday 10th or Sunday 17th November. and leave it on the table in the church hall.

Hats, Gloves and Scarves have been handknitted by a member of the congragation these are suitable for placing in the boxes and will be available for a small donation.

Many thanks
