Christian Aid Week 2020

Christian Aid Week 2020 will soon be upon us. It runs from Sunday 10th May to Saturday 16th May. The present circumstances mean that Christian Aid Week will look very different this year – no House to House collection, no Soup and Snack Lunch, no Quiz, in fact nothing that involves physical contact with others. Despite this Christian Aid Week goes ahead – digitally!!

For more information about how you can help, please go to

Alternatively, you may choose to visit the Just Giving page which Geoff has set up for the Colchester Christian Aid Group. This link will also be shared directly with folks who have  supported Christian Aid locally in the past. You might feel able to share this link with your contacts, whether they live in Colchester or not! It is



A prayer for the church

May your love that never fails

strengthen the weak

encourage the fearful

calm the anxious

heal the sick

through your church –

your washed hands

and feet on earth –

distant but still present

virtual but still connected

apart but still helping.

God in your mercy,

hear our prayer.
