Neston & District Christian Aid Committee
|Published: 25th February 2020 13:07|
The local Christian Aid committee is part of Neston and District Churches Together (NDCT), which represents the churches in Burton, Little Neston, Neston, Parkgate and Willaston.
Members organise a sponsored walk in March, a house-to-house collection during Christian Aid Week in May, bag-packing in Sainsbury's at Christmas and Christian Aid Week, and collection at Gordale at Christmas and Christian Aid Week.
All the money raised is sent to Christian Aid Head Office: in 2019 we sent over £12,000.
An ecumenical service is held in a local church during Christian Aid Week.
Christian Aid's motto is ‘We believe in life before death'. They work in 50 countries through local organisations to deliver direct, practical benefits, and campaign to challenge the causes of poverty. A detailed description of the aims and work of Christian Aid can be found on www.christian-aid.org/.
