Charity of the Month

Each year, the congregation at St. Andrew’s nominates charities, both local and national, who they‘d like to support over the coming twelve months, over and above their weekly giving to the Church.  The congregation then votes and the top ten charities (plus the annual Bishop of London’s Lent Appeal and CofE Schools in the Diocese) are each allocated a month and details of the charity are posted in church and donations placed in the collection box.

This month’s Charity is: THE BRITISH RED CROSS helps people in crisis, whoever and wherever they are and is part of a global voluntary network, responding to conflicts, natural disasters and individual emergencies. The Charity helps vulnerable people in the UK and abroad prepare for, withstand and recover from emergencies in their own communities..
