Can you help Wigan Hospice?
Appley Bridge Scouts need help – Could it be YOU?
The Scouts meet on a Monday night, but are short of adult helpers. They’d love to go for walks or to the baths but need additional adults to do that. If you could help one Monday a month, please contact our Vicar Sue or Reader Diane or email: firstname.lastname@example.org
No prior experience of scouting is necessary. You will be required to undergo safeguarding training and a DBS check.
Operation Christmas Child
Every year Appley Bridge All Saints’ is part of the Operation Christmas Child Appeal. People pack shoeboxes with small gifts for children who would otherwise have no gifts at Christmas.
A small shoebox can have a big impact. What goes into the box is fun, but what comes out of it is eternal. Be a part of changing children’s lives all over the world in Jesus’ name through the power of a simple gift.
Thanks so much to the many people who filled shoeboxes a to share God’s love and the joy of Christmas. Over 50 boxes were sent from our church for the 2017 appeal.
