St Columba’s Church supported Christian Aid Week this year by hosting an ecumenical coffee morning on Saturday 12 May, followed by a Big Brekkie on the morning of Sunday 13 May. Church members will also be helping with the door-to-door collecting during the week.
It was lovely to have a surprise visit from one of our previous ministers at the morning service.
An ecumenical service was held at Christ Church on the evening of Sunday 13 May, describing some of the aid work carried out by Christian Aid and its partners around the world, rebuilding and transforming lives, working for justice, empowerment and an end to poverty. This year’s materials focussed on rebuilding after earthquake and hurricane in Haiti.
