Christian Aid

Christian AidChristian Aid is a major charity, well supported by our five church and village communities.  The group organise fund-raising events including; the annual house to house collection in May, concerts, quiz evenings and coffee mornings.

2014′s Christian Aid Week theme is peace and reconciliation. The bible and the Church have so much to say on this issue, and it’s an area that Christian Aid is working on all over the world, from Afghanistan to Syria, to Zimbabwe.  Conflict destroys lives and is a major cause of poverty and destitution.  We can be instruments of God’s peace; seeking to tackle the causes of conflict, caring for those in the midst of it, and helping people rebuild their lives in its aftermath.

The 5 Villages Christian Aid group would like to say thank you to all of our collectors, and to all who gave donations. As a result we are able to forward £2297.04 to Christian Aid for their work with partners in more than a dozen countries where there is conflict, and in a dozen more where there is now peace, helping these communities to recover.
