Shoe Boxes 2014

Sunday 16th November worship we took a moment to reflect on our part in the Shoe Box campaign for this year.

We watched a video clip of a shoebox journey and then relfected on why we fill boxes and the impact it has on both those who give and receive. Deacon Lemia dedidated and blessed the boxes as they take their next stage in the journey.

A the end the congregation formed a human chain and moved the boxes from the church to the bacfk room ready for collection

Thank you to all who took part

Update we have had an update from Samaritans Purse that boxes went to North Iraq. Here is the link to the article
