Gift Day 2019
Each June we have a Gift Day, which is an opportunity to support ministry and mission outside our parish. In 2019 we supported two local projects and two overseas:
Riverbank Trust - The Trust provides supportive and loving community for vulnerable single mothers and their families. Our support will help it to further develop its work
LVA Trust - The Trust teaches relationship and sex education in schools and other youth settings, with the aim of encouraging positive self-esteem and healthy relationships. Our support will contribute towards the cost of expanding its work with young men and hiring a male educator
The Church in the Democratic Republic of Congo - Our support will enable local churches to run trauma healing seminars in and around Bunia, and provide practical help to some of the tens of thousands of people displaced by unrest in the country
St Peter's Church, Wandegeya, Kampala, Uganda - Our support will contribute towards the cost of redeveloping and building a new toilet block at our partner church.
