Operation Christmas Child
It’s shoebox time again! 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.
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. Mothers’ Union are leading the 2018 campaign in All Saints’ – please consider filling a shoe box or making a donation.
Please follow the directions for filling the box either from the leaflet in church or from the link below.
Filled shoeboxes can be handed in at church.They must be given in by the end of the evening service on 11th November to get to their destination in time.
A collection of food and toiletries for the food bank at the Skelmersdale Ecumenical Centre is continuing.
They seek to give out food parcels which are nutritionally balanced. They are short supplies which make that possible. They’d appreciate donations of the following: tinned carrots; tinned mixed vegetables: tinned meat e.g. spam/ham corned beef; tinned chicken meals e.g. curry or chicken in white sauce; tins of meatballs; tinned spaghetti bolognese; tins of ravioli; tinned rice pudding; tinned custard; tinned fruit; sugar (500g bags);teabags in 40 or 80 packs; long life milk; dried pasta pasta ‘n’ sauce.
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: email@example.com
No prior experience of scouting is necessary. You will be required to undergo safeguarding training and a DBS check.
Big Brekkie was a Big Success Saturday 17th March 2018 at All Saints’ School.
Food, fun and fund-raising for Christian Aid. The final total raised for Christian Aid was a magnificent £723. Many thanks to all who attended, helped and contributed.
