Each year at Christ Church, we support the Samaritans Purse - Operation Christmas Child Appeal.  You can help us by packing a shoebox with gifts for a child who might otherwise receive nothing for Christmas - to find out more about the appeal and how you can be involved take a look at their website https://www.samaritans-purse.org.uk/what-we-do/operation-christmas-child/

Flat-pack shoe boxes and leaflets are available to pick up in church - full instructions on what to pack and what not to pack are included. 

**PLEASE - NO TOOTHPASTE OR SWEETS AT ALL THIS YEAR (Due to customs regulations)**

There is also a larger donations box in church, for individual items that will be used to make up extra boxes - please feel free to add donations to this if you prefer!

Please make sure your boxes are in church by 3rd November for our All Togther Service at 10.30am at the very latest so that they can be checked and sent to the distribution centre.
