Christian Aid Week 2020

Christian Aid week is  here and once again we hope to raise funds for those in need.

We cannot do our usual house to house collection this year but we can all still take part in CAW and raise money for those living in extreme poverty.

Covid-19 should not stop us helping those in need

Here’s what we can do.

Log onto the Christian Aid website www.christianaid.org.uk and make a donation or…

Send a cheque to Leicester C.Aid committee treasurer, Christine Harrison, 14 Campion Walk, Leicester, LE4 0PD. Cheque payable to Christian Aid and mark St Philip and St James, Ratby or Groby (depending where you live) on the back.

Or..telephone 020 7523 2269 (Quote reference no. OR182430 if you’re in Groby or OR252570 if you’re in Ratby)

E-envelope: Details available during Christian Aid Week

Act : sign the Debt Jubilee petition for a better deal for the poorest nations.


As we know many charities are struggling at this time so this year more than ever CAW needs our support.

We hope that you will feel able to encourage your friends to make donations and/or to visit The Praise Jukebox...........

So, for one week only we are offering a human Jukebox where you can request praise songs from a published list.

Between 10th - 16th May at 7pm just enter ‘The Praise Jukebox’ on your Facebook search box  to arrive at our Churches Together Page. Visitors will be able to choose from popular praise and worship songs by sending a comment requesting a song. Our captive musician will then play/sing it for you live.

We are hoping that this will be a popular evening activity and that all visitors will also make a donation to Christian Aid via the Justgiving link on The Praise Jukebox Page. All donations will go direct to C.Aid and you can be confident that your bank details will be secure. The minimum donation is set at £2 and visitors will be able to gift aid their donation if applicable.
