I hope you are all well and have had a good week.
Here we are at the beginning of May so I thought you might like a picture of the Green Man in Church, a traditional symbol for this time of year.
Christian Aid Week starts on 10 May with climate crisis being its main focus of attention. The climate crisis is having a devastating impact on communities in Kenya. Right now, families struggle to survive without a reliable water source. Every day, they walk further, dig deeper and build stronger to survive. Unrelenting. Determined.
This climate crisis hurts us all. But people living in poverty fight the worst of it every day. From drought to flooding, climate change robs people of control over their lives. Extreme weather means people like Rose are struggling to survive without a reliable source of water. You can lean more about Rose’s story here:- https://www.christianaid.org.uk/appeals-key-appeals/christian-aid-week/christian-aid-week-roses-story
Your gift could help a community build an earth dam, so when the rains do come, they will have the water they need to live. A reliable source of water will help families withstand long drought or relentless rainstorms.
Every envelope. Every gift. Every challenge can change lives.
There will be envelopes available in Church for the next two Sundays which can be returned to the Post Office in Moore thanks to Don and Elaine.
However Christian Aid are encouraging us to give using their e-envelopes which can be labelled to our Church. You will find the e-envelope here:-https://envelope.christianaid.org.uk/envelope/all-saints-church-daresbury?channel=copy.
We have given ourselves the challenging target of £500, but if everyone on this circulation list gave £10 we would raise over 3 times this. With everything else going on in the world at the moment, it seems the least we can do.
