The Lent Appeal 2021
We are going to raise money for two causes this year, one close to home and one further away.
Our first cause is Unicef who are raising funds to deliver the vaccine in developing countries. Their aim is to vaccinate health workers and those at highest risk in low and middle income countries, so that the vaccines get to the most remote places in the world, are safely refrigerated and stored, and local health workers are protected and trained to give the vaccine. In this way we will be giving thanks for the protection we have received by helping others to receive it too.
Our second cause is the churches in Hull that are working with the Mustard Seed project, which is helping nurture disciples in places where life is tough. Many of these churches in Marfleet and Bransholme, for example, and soon in north Hull really struggle financially. They are doing amazing things for their communities running food banks and other community projects but find it very difficult to pay the bills. We could help them to pay the heating bill, for example, so that volunteers weren’t runn ing a food bank in a freezing church! This will make a huge difference to churches in the poorest communities on our doorstep.
You can give by cheque or by cash in your envelope, or online through our online giving page: http://bit.ly/DonatetoStMarys If you want to give to only one of our causes, or to split your donation, then please let us know. Your contributions will make a real difference to people’s lives.
