May is the month when we remember the valuable work done by Christian Aid in many countries of the world. Unfortunately, this year will be very different as there will be no house to house collection or fund raising activities at Church.
This comes at a time when the poorer communities of the world need our help more than ever. Coronavirus has impacted on all of us but for those already facing a lack of water, food and healthcare the problems are much greater. For refugees and other displaced people there is little meaning to stay at home and social distancing orders. If they don’t work they risk starving and if they do work they risk bringing Covid 19 into their crowded tents and rundown apartments.
We can help Christian Aid to reach the most vulnerable at this critical time. Perhaps like me you have spent less on petrol and other extras in this past month. Could you give a little more than usual in thanks for your own health and comfort?
Please help if you are able,
Christian Aid week runs from
10th-16th May 2020
You can support it even though there are no house to house collections or special events

Coronavirus impacts on all of us, but love unites us all.
A PRAYER FOR A GLOBAL PANDEMIC FROM CHRISTIAN AID:
“Loving God, strengthen our innermost being with your love that bears all things even the weight of this global pandemic even the long haul of watching for symptoms of patiently waiting for this to pass watching and waiting, keeping our gaze fixed on you, and looking out for our neighbours near and far. Instil in our shaken souls the belief and hope that all things are possible with your creative love for strangers to become friends for science to source solutions for resources to be generously shared so everyone, everywhere, may have what they need for your perfect love that knows no borders may cast out any fear and selfishness that divides. May your love that never ends be our comfort, strength and guide for the wellbeing of all and the glory of God. Amen.”
