The congregation is heavily involved with this charity, which is run by Samaritan’s Purse. The appeal provides shoeboxes of gifts and small useful items for disadvantaged children in south-east Asia and the south Pacific.
The shoeboxes are made available in the second half of the year, along with some small items. Please provide what you can, and the shoeboxes will be collected and dedicated in October. There is usually a retiring offering to cover the costs of the boxes and transport.
The dedication of boxes usually takes place in services in October.
