The theme for this year’s appeal is ‘I came that they may have life and have it abundantly’. The Bishop of Southwark has asked if we can support projects not only in our own Diocese, but others in Sri Lanka, Kenya and Zimbabwe, including:
- Work of the Leprosy Mission in Sri Lanka;
- Church Army Africa’s Carlile College in Nairobi, which trains people for mission and evangelism;
- The Diocese of Central Zimbabwe, who continues to work in very challenging circumstances, with many struggling without enough to live on, or pay for school or medical fees.
- Sutton Women’s Centre who provide a space for women, who have often been the victims of domestic violence.
We will take a collection for this Appeal next Sunday (14th) - Palm Sunday.
