christian aid

Christian Aid is a charity that insists that the world can and must be changed to one where everyone can live a full life free from poverty. It works for change for all regardless of race or creed providing urgent practical and effective assistance where needed, tackling the effects of poverty as well as its root causes.

Inter faith dialogue is important to Christian Aid.  St Peter’s has two representative on the local committee of churches which  coordinates the house  to house collection during Christian Aid week in May organises a varied programme of other fund raising events.  These events are published in the parish newsletter.

The Christian Aid Book Sale, Holy Corner,  is held during Christian Aid Week.   In recent years it has been a major fundraising event, well supported by parishioners from St Peter’s
This year the Holy Corner Book Sale is returning on 14/15 May at Morningside United Church. NO NEW BOOK DONATIONS CAN BE ACCEPTED.
