10th – 16th May 2021
Christian Aid Week will look a little different this year for us but there are still plenty of ways you can be part of this life-changing week locally, alongside other churches from across Cardiff East.
Here are some highlights:
Does digital donating work for you? Check out our Just Giving and Facebook fundraising pages.
We have decided not to pursue traditional House-to-House collection this year due to coronavirus. There are still envelopes available though, which we will deliver to local houses. These can be returned direct by the householder to venues such as churches. We will also have envelopes at local churches for your own donation.
Could you deliver a “Delivery Only” envelope in your street this year?
We have some great ideas to raise funds in other ways this year. Some will put you in touch with supporters of Christian Aid across the UK. Others are our own ideas!
Why not sign up for Quiztian Aid on 8 May? In 2020 the quiz raised almost £7000. This year’s quiz is hosted by Death in Paradise stars, Tobi and Prisca Bakare with special guest hosts including Kate Bottley, Kris Marshall and Rowan Williams. Sign up here and invite your friends, family or church to join and help transform lives.
Is Rowan Williams a better host than our own regular quizmaster? Sign up now to find out!
Wear red for Christian Aid
As usual, we have great support from local schools. Some are holding a non-uniform day or baking cakes. We will also repeat our Wear Red for Christian Aid day which was a hit in 2020.
Will you post a picture of you or your family wearing red this year?
The 300,000 steps Challenge
And finally, our Big Push this year. The 300,000 steps in May challenge!
We are looking to take 300,000 sponsored steps in May to raise vital funds for communities battling the worst of the climate crisis. You can take the challenge alone or with a team, supporting each other to reach your goal. Walk, jump, skip or run; it’s completely up to you! Just a handful of steps is great or something more energetic. Ask friends and family to sponsor you and donate via our Just Giving page.
Can you step out to save lives this year?
However you choose to support Christian Aid Week this year, we are grateful for your support.
Your prayers, giving and support make a life-changing difference to communities which Christian Aid work with, fighting injustice, campaigning for change or responding in a humanitarian emergency. We hope you can join us and continue that legacy this May.
