Operation Christmas child is an arm of Samaritan’s Purse. Our church has been involved in Operation Christmas Child for many, many years. Throughout the year we collect goods to fill shoes boxes which are sent overseas to third world countries to needy children. The shoe boxes all contain –
- Something to wear… Collecting during April 2022
- Education… Collecting during May 2022
- Something to Love… Collecting during June 2022
- Hygiene… Collecting during July 2022
- Something to play with… Collecting during August 2022
- Packing Day… September/October
Each year we send 200 boxes filled with goodies but most importantly love. The boxes illustrate a practical outworking of our love for God and his care towards all. The joy these shoeboxes bring to the hearts and minds of disadvantaged children and their families is truly an uplifting experience!
