The Lent Appeal 2021
The PCC has agreed that there will be a Lent Appeal this year and
I hope there will be full details about it in next week’s e-News.
But, meanwhile, do you have any ideas about raising funds for
the Lent Appeal when we aren’t able to have our usual type of
fund-raising events? Please let me or the Rector or a
Churchwarden have your ideas. Here is one to get us started
(borrowed from something Christian Aid suggests) – have a jam
jar or pot of some kind to hand and put in donations in thanks for
all the good things you have enjoyed that day. For example:
• Each day, put in 20p (or 50p or whatever) for each time
you have filled the kettle from a tap, and pray for those
who have no access to clean running water.
• Each day, put in 20p (or 50p or whatever) for each of your
medicines, and pray for those who do not have access to
free health care and for our own carers and health
• Each day, put in 20p (or 50p or whatever) for each meal
you enjoy and pray for those who go hungry.
• Put in 20p (or 50p or whatever) each time you have a
phone call or meeting with a friend, and pray for those
who are lonely or friendless.
• Put in 20p (or 50p or whatever) for each book you have
enjoyed reading, and pray for all the children who are
missing school and for parents trying to cope with home
You might prefer to make up your own list of things that suit you
better – but the principle is the same.
