Christian Aid insist that everyone should be able to live a full life, free from poverty. It works with people of all faiths and none, never giving money to governments and is the official development agency of 41 church denominations in Britain and Ireland.
During Christian Aid Week volunteers from our church, and other churches in the area, deliver and collect Christian Aid Week envelopes to houses in Westbury-on- Trym and Stoke Bishop. Over £140,000 has been collected in this way since 2004. Holy Trinity raised a splendid £2,246.67 in Christian Aid Week in 2018, a 16% rise on 2017.

The group needs volunteers to help during Christian Aid Week, from 12th – 18th May 2019, delivering envelopes and collecting donations from as many houses as you feel able. Please contact Ken Pattison initially via the Parish Office by phone on 0117 950 8644 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
