Operation Christmas child is a way of bringing some Christmas cheer to a poor, needy or suffering child.
The idea is to fill a shoe box (if you can’t get hold of one, we have a supply) with small gifts, (please read the leaflet carefully about what is acceptable) and add a donation of £5 or more towards transport costs.
We are an official collecting point for filled Shoeboxes.
We are also holding a special service to gather the filled Shoeboxes, when you can hear more about what happens to the filled boxes.
Date – Sunday 17th November
Time – 10.30 am with refreshments from 10.15 am and also after the service which will last about hour.
Place – St Catherine’s Church, Wittenham Avenue, RG31 5LN.
Alternatively you can bring Shoeboxes to St Catherine’s Church or Cornwell 0-5 play group anytime before 17th November.
