Charity of the Month
On the first and second Sundays of the month we have a voluntary collection. These alternate each month between overseas and home charities. In the last year this has raised approximately £2000. Charities have included The Samaritans, Water Aid, Rug Aid, Darlington's Women Refuge, World Vision and Emmaus. We have recently supported Playgrounds for Palestine - a charity which raises money to provide much needed play areas in Palestine.
The charities for the next few months are below. On alternative months our Charity of the Month giving will go to the Anglican Mission Agency USPG (United Society Partners in the Gospel), in support of their work throughout the world. For further information on USPG please visit:
