Christian Aid Week 10 – 16 May 2021

Droughts are now more frequent and more intense due to the climate crisis. Millions of people in Kenya are struggling to get enough food and water. Your gift could help a community build an earth dam so when the rains do come, they will have the water they need to live. A reliable source of water will help families withstand long drought or relentless rainstorms.

In Scotland, we are blessed to be surrounded by 30,000 freshwater lochs, lush countryside and thriving agriculture.

This Christian Aid Week…..every envelope…..every gift matters.

Together we can stop this climate crisis.

Christian Aid Virtual Big Quiz: Alastair Jeffrey has kindly agreed to organise a fundraising quiz as part of Christian Aid Week on Wednesday 12th May, 6.30pm for 7.00 pm. It will be held on Zoom. If you wish to take part (or even if you don’t) then when you make an online donation to Christian Aid via Trinity you will receive an email with joining instructions for the quiz. The quiz is just for fun and will have something for everyone! It will also be a great chance to say hello to your church family. Your link to take part and for donations is here.

Paper Quiz: Get involved with Christian Aid’s “Guess the song” paper quiz – download it here. Send your completed entry to Robert Allan, 9 Majors Loan, Falkirk FK1 5QF with a cheque donation made payable to Falkirk Trinity Church. The winner will be drawn on 16th May and there will be a small prize! All proceeds will be forwarded to Christian Aid.

Global Service: Christian Aid will celebrate 75 years by holding a global service on Sunday 9th May, details can be found on their website.

Steps: Challenge yourself to walk 300,000 steps during May to raise vital funds for communities battling the worst of this climate crisis.  This challenge clocks in at just under 10,000 steps a day and you can do the challenge alone or with a team, supporting each other to reach your goal. Whether you decide to walk, jump, skip, hop or run your steps is completely up to you!
