Church actively supports overseas aid
Aid, the church's own charity, aims to enable the most deprived people
in the developing regions of our world to work towards improving their
own circumstances. Financial support of local overseas organisations
working in partnership with Christian Aid ensures that those who know
the problems first-hand can work towards producing the solutions.
Aid also provides practical emergency disaster relief throughout the
world in co-operation with other charities and in our Church we have
a 'hands-on' reaction whenever it is required.

fund-raising activities including local house-to-house collections,
the Annual Fair and year-round availability of donation boxes. All these
are generously supported.

The Prayer Chain operates on Tuesday and Thursday mornings and evenings.
Around 30 people take part and requests are passed from one person to
another by telephone along the 'chain' or by e-mail as appropriate.
Individuals in the chain then pray about the requests in their own time.
Prayer requests come from the Minister, Prayer Chain members and anyone
in the congregation. Messages can also be left in the Prayer box at
the back of the Church. We pray for the sick, for people having operations,
for people in trouble, and for world issues. Always there is a strong
emphasis on confidentiality.
Prayers are phoned and e-mailed on Tuesdays and Thursdays along with
God-given answers to prayers.
