Our church each year gives away money to certain charities. There are many very deserving causes and we can only spread our limited resources to a few charities.
There are regular or occasional annual services at which collections take place which are then passed to the charity concerned. These include:
The Children's Society is a leading children's charity committed to making childhood better for all children in the UK.
We hold an annual Christingle Service.
The Royal British Legion safeguards the welfare, interests and memory of those who are serving or who have served in the Armed Forces.
We hold an annual Remembrance Day service.
The Brigade's vision is that everyone who needs it should receive first aid from those around them. No one should suffer for the lack of trained first aiders.
We held an occasional area service.
We also have a policy to give away 10% of the net proceeds from all our fund-raising efforts. Each year this can amount to over £600. We have given in recent years to:
