Christian Aid Emergency Appeal

We have received an emergency appeal for East Africa who are facing their worst drought in 40 years. Lives are at risk.

Envelopes are at the back of each Church if you would like to make a donation

You can also contribute via the Christian Aid website here.

We continue to pray for the situation in Ukraine: for those affected by the violence; for those in leadership positions; for God’s power and love to be revealed through the church; for the wider global impact; and for peace. British Ukrainian Aid provides medical and humanitarian assistance to the victims of war. For more information go to: British-Ukrainian Aid 

Please be aware that the gates to Findon Church

are now locking automatically overnight -

Pedestrian access through the side gate will still be available.
