Annual Report for Christian Aid, Petersfield 2014

The Christian Aid committee met three times this year, mostly in preparation for Christian Aid Week which took place during May. The committee consists of reps from several of the PACT churches but not all churches are represented. That meant that the collections for Christian Aid week did not cover the whole town this year. Despite this, we were able to raise an impressive £5703 during the week. This was a combination of house-to-house collecting, a flag day in the town centre, a sponsored walk and coffee mornings. Further fundraising took place in individual churches during the year, such as at the St Peter’s Harvest Supper where £300 was raised.

Our first events for this year include the annual Soup Lunch on February 7th at the Methodist Church hall. We are very excited to be hosting a visit from Tekalign Kebede from Ethiopia on March 8th. He will be speaking at the 9.30 service at St Peter’s and this will be followed by a bring and share lunch, to which all are welcome.
