Samaritan’s Purse Operation Christmas Child Shoe Box Appeal 2019
Appley Bridge All Saints’ Church has been supporting this appeal again this year.
We heard in church on Sunday 20th October about the wonderful impact this can have on children who would not otherwise receive gifts, and how it is a great way to share God’s love with others.
Many shoeboxes have now been collected and they are on their way to children who will be overjoyed to receive them.
