Since 1986, successive Bishop’s in Southwark have issued a ‘call’ for parishes to use Lent as a time of prayer and contemplation, as well as raise money for specific projects here and abroad. In that time, over £1 million has been raised for more than 150 projects. We will take a collection over the Easter weekend for the projects chosen this year, which include:
The Holy Land – The Al Ahli Arab Hospital & The Al Shurooq School for the Blind and Visually Impaired.
Zimbabwe – The dioceses of Masvingo, Matabeleland & Manicaland and their involvement with many schools.
Southwark Diocese – Bede House, The Association for Pastoral Care in Mental Health & The Spires Centre.
Further details of these projects can be found at the MOP noticeboard in church.
