Christian Aid Week 14–20 May 2023


The Christian Aid Week appeal this year focuses on Malawi and the struggle farmers face to survive due to the climate crisis. In Malawi, food, fuel, fertiliser and school fees have doubled in price in the last 12 months.  Christian Aid helps families to grow food crops resilient to climate change and to trade these fairly, cutting out unscrupulous middlemen.

Greenbank Church volunteers will be distributing delivery-only envelopes to around 1400 houses in our parish during the week. Thank you to everyone who has agreed to help with this.

The envelopes will include a flyer to say that they have been delivered by a volunteer from Greenbank Church and will invite people to donate:

I understand that our neighbouring congregations will not be distributing envelopes this year.  If you live outside Greenbank Parish and would like an envelope, there will be some available in the church vestibule or please contact me, I have some extra.

Please support Christian Aid Week.  There is further information here -
