Christian Aid News

Two Dates for your March 2019 diaries!

The Gathering, Friday 1st March 10:00 am - 1 pm at Wheatley House, 25 Cochrane St, G1 1HL

The Gathering is an event for anyone who supports the work of Christian Aid; they’re being held all over Scotland in the next few weeks. If you’re free on Friday 1st March, why not come along and hear Jeanne Kamara, Christian Aid’s country manager in Sierra Leone, telling us how her team is transforming people’s lives by standing up to poverty and injustice? There will also be a Christian Aid Week 2019 preview, workshops on advocacy and fundraising and a chance to hear supporters’ stories. Refreshments will be provided.

If you’d like to go, please sign up by email: glasgow@christian-aid.org or by phoning the Christian Aid Glasgow Office on 221 7475. Or contact me – details below – and I’ll get you registered.

Thursday 28th March 7:30 pm: An Evening of Music with the Stonelaw High School Ensemble.

Venue: Rutherglen United Reformed Church, Johnstone Drive. Not an evening to be missed!
This event is Rutherglen Christian Aid Committee’s spring fundraiser.
Tickets: £5 for adults and £2 for children, from Jean MacKenzie or Jill Rennie from the end of February.

And finally, an appeal to anyone who is interested in the work of Christian Aid and who can spare one Thursday evening a month to join me in representing Stonelaw on the Rutherglen Churches Christian Aid Committee. A lift can be provided to Burnside Church where the meetings are held.

If you'd like to know more, please just ask!
