As a church we co-ordinate three community appeals throughout the year.
At Christmas we collect PJ’s, advent calendars and selection boxes for children in St Helens who are living in poverty. The weeks leading up to Christmas we distribute the donations through schools, churches, FoodBank, local charities and social services. On Christmas Eve we also host a community party for families to come and collect their PJ’s. In 2015 over 900 pairs of PJ’s were donated by the incredible people of St Helens
At Easter we collect Easter Eggs for children in St Helens who are living in poverty. It might be something very simple, but blessing over 1200 children in 2016 with Easter Eggs was an amazing thing!
Over the summer we collect School equipment from pens and pencils to uniforms and sports equipment so that Children in St Helens who are living in poverty are fully resourced to be prepared for the new academic year of study.
