Operation Christmas child is a way of bringing some Christmas cheer to a poor, needy or suffering child.
The idea is to fill a shoebox with small gifts, (please read the leaflet carefully about what is acceptable) and add a donation of £5 or more towards transport costs.
A simple shoebox gift packed with love and fuelled by prayer can have a huge impact!
If you have trouble getting a shoebox, we have a supply of flat pack boxes already decorated for 50pence each.
We are an official collecting point for filled Shoeboxes.
Alternatively, you can ‘pack’ a Shoebox online at: https://shoeboxonline.samaritans-purse.org.uk/

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 21st November
Time – 10.00 am with refreshments after the service.
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 21st November.
