Operation Christmas Child
Together we can make a difference!
We can put a smile on a child's face, and sow hope this Christmas - as we partner with Samaritans Purse in 'Operation Christmas Child' and make a difference globally.
Whilst we're living in a time where there are limitations and things we can't do - we love that as a Church family, Operation Christmas Child enables us to focus on what we can do.
We can sow seeds of hope
We can sow seeds of the gospel
We can sow prayer
We can show love
We can be a neighbour to a person on the other side of the world
Let's spread the love of Jesus to children living in third world countries - showing them that they are not forgotten! Many of these children will also be given the opportunity to find out more about Jesus through a programme called 'The Greatest Journey'.
What is it all about?
Packing shoe boxes filled with toys for children which will be sent to children around the world who live in poverty - showing them that they are not forgotten. Many of these children will also be given the opportunity to find out more about Jesus through a programme called 'The Greatest Journey'.
How do I pack a shoe box?
