Operation Christmas child is an arm of Samaritan’s Purse which falls under the Uniting Church banner. 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 play with… March 2019
- something for personal hygiene… April 2019
- something to love… May 2019
- something to wear… June 2019
- education… July 2019
- Packing Day… To be advised.
Each year we have sent over 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!
