The Charities Team plans and coordinates a programme of events and activities each year to raise funds for local, national and international charities.
Organisations we have supported recently include
We also work to raise awareness of ethical concerns worldwide, such as poverty, climate change and unjust tax and trade systems, and we encourage church members to take whatever action they can on these issues.
We are supporting two charities this Christmas, Kingston Churches Action on Homelessness, which offers hope and advice to local homeless people. Visit their website here and Save the Children’s Child Refugee Crisis Appeal which funds teams working across Europe and in the countries refugees are fleeing, to provide aid and support for frightened and homeless children. All donations from our Christmas Greetings Tree and the collection from our crib service will be split between these two charities.
