Operation Christmas Child

We are supporting Operation Christmas Child once again this year as a local collection point for shoeboxes to be dropped off.

The mission of Operation Christmas Child is to show God’s love in a tangible way to children in need around the world, and together with the local church worldwide, to share the good news of Jesus Christ. Since 1990, more than 157 million children in over 160 countries have experienced God’s love through the power of simple shoebox gifts from Operation Christmas Child.

Shoeboxes for some children can be the only gift they receive at Christmas. You can find out more information about what to put in a shoebox on the Operation Christmas Child website here

The Parish Centre is open Monday to Friday, 9.30am to 1.30pm and on Sunday mornings. The shoeboxes will be collected from St. Michael’s on Monday 19th November.
