Christian Aid works to bring an end to poverty around the world- tackling its root causes as well as its effects. They help people of all faiths and none. Last year Christian Aid Week raised the fantastic sum of £11.3 million (£2,028 came from the churches of St John’s Wood!). Money raised goes towards supporting some of the poorest communities around the world to find their own solutions to poverty. They never give money to governments but work through over 500 local organisations in 47 countries. To find out more go to christianaid.org.uk
Thank you to all who have supported Christian Aid Week. We have raised over £1125 from last week’s Book Fair and donations are still coming in.

11am – Choral Matins, led by the Chamber Choir
6.30pm – Choral Eucharist, with St John’s Wood Church Choir
