Christian Aid

Christian Aid Week 13-19 May 2018

The world is experiencing a great dela of trauma, loss and tragedy as a result of the floods in South Asia, Hurricane Irma, the Myanmar refugee crisis and many other terrible situations. This year's theme for Christian Aid week is "Together we are stronger than the storms" St Andrew with St Alban, along with thousands of churches, will take part in Christian Aid Week when some 100,000 committed volunteers will go out into the streets and put their faith into action, raising funds to help some of the poorest and most vulnerable people.

If you would like to help in Mottingham this year here's how:

House to House Collections - we are always in need of house to house collectors as we currently only manage to cover a small number of the roads in Mottingham. The more volunteers we have, the more houses we can cover and the more money we can raise. Why not join with others who already volunteer, collect with them and discover that it's rewarding and not as bad as you might think!

Sponsored Walk - If you enjoy walking thenyou could take part in the "Circle The City" sponsored walk which takes place at 1:15pm on Sunday 20 May 2018. "Circle The City" is 21 this year! Come and join the huge celebration at the end of Christian Aid Week! Explore some of the City of London's best loved sights and Places of Worship and enjoy pop-up exhibitions, music and other activities. There are two distance options for you to choose - 6km for the fitter and 3km for the less fit! The event starts from St Mary-le-Bow, Cheapside, London EC2. A short pre-walk service will be held at 1pm.
