Christian Aid Week Appeal
10th to 16th May 2021
This year, with current restrictions affecting street and door-to-door collections, Christian Aid Week is marked by an on-line appeal. Attention is particularly drawn to the effect of climate changes on areas of Kenya, where drought and flood are causing real hardship.
In support of this year’s Christian Aid Week appeal, the Spire Church, with the help of ministers and members of other Farnham Churches, has produced a moving service, which focuses on the climate emergency which we are all facing. You can enjoy the service through this YOU-TUBE LINK.
The collection will focus on helping local communities to construct dams and catchments to collect water from rainfall and, at the same time, protect communities from flood.
