Charity of the Month

Each month we support a different charity. Information about the chosen charity is published in the Parish magazine, and a presentation is made at the 10.30 service on the first Sunday of the month.

The Charity for the month of May is Christian Aid

In Haiti, Marcelin raised his three daughters alone. They’ve endured some of the worst natural disasters on earth. They’re not just survivors. They’re fighters. But they’re only so strong. They won’t survive the next hurricane without your help.

This Christian Aid Week, you can be in their corner. You can help them build a home that will weather the next storm, so they won’t need to fight to survive anymore.

Christian Aid Week unites people like you from all walks of life. We step out in mission for our neighbours like Marcelin, because we believe in life before death. 

 This Christian Aid Week, 13-19 May, our church is... 

Doing a house to house collection

Collecting at Marden Station

Holding a Cake and Produce Sale and Raffle in the Village Café on Friday 11th May, 10-11:30am

Taking part in the Circle the City Sponsored Walk on 20th May

Will you join us? If our church can raise £210, we could pay for two days’ construction training for a local builder in Haiti. The builder could then build secure, comfortable homes for people like Marcelin, giving them a safe place to weather the next disaster, and a fighting chance to build a better life.

Speak to Julie Morgan (831620) or Carol Walker (831132) if you would like to help. 

Together we can be stronger than the storms! Thank you.

The Charity for the month of June is the Alzheimer's Society

The Alzheimer’s Society aims to unite communities and bring people together to support those affected by dementia. Every day they work tirelessly to find a cure. They strive to create a more dementia-friendly society so people with the condition can live without fear and prejudice. No one should face dementia alone.  

 Our gifts this June can enable all sorts of amazing things to happen. People with dementia and their carers can have high quality reliable support, so that they can get the most out of their lives. Researchers can pursue their projects, with confidence and determination to keep going until dementia is defeated 

 On Sunday 17th June  you are invited to a STRAWBERRY TEA from 3.00 – 5.00 pm.  Thanks to the generosity of Rosemary and Steve,  this will be held in the garden at Woodstock, Albion Road. The price is £5 per adult (free for children). Please give generously. 

Here in Marden we also have a special meeting for those suffering from Dementia, called ‘Living Memories’.
