Christian Aid is one of the charities regularly supported by Dymock Church. Each year in May we take part in the national house to house collection in the village to coincide with "Christian Aid Week". Christian Aid week in 2013 is 12-18 May. (Return to top)
In 2011 Dymock raised £951 for Christian Aid and in 2012 it was £813. We hope that people will 'Gift Aid' their contribution if they pay UK income tax, since Christian Aid can then reclaim back 25% more though the tax you've already paid, without any additional cost to you. (Return to top)
Prayer for Christian Aid Week
God of the rushing wind, sweep through my indifference.
God of the fiery flames, ignite my compassion.
God of the many voices, open my mouth to speak out against injustice
that through your Spirit and my actions this world may be transformed.
Amen. (Return to top)
