Chris Day does Sponsored Walk in aid of Open Doors Charity Covid work in India

Crosscrake parishoner Chris Day is doing a sponsored walk. Here he speaks about the walk and the charity it will help:

“I’m doing some sponsored walking to raise money for Christians in India who have been affected by Covid-19, or who are victims of violence because of their faith. Doctors in hospitals refuse to treat them because they are Christians. Many have lost their livlihood in lockdown and don’t receive aid for the same reason.

Every £60 raised could give urgent Covid relief and help with medical costs to a victim of violence or to a believer who has lost their livlihood through the pandemic.

I hope to walk 180 miles between 1st October and 31st December, whatever the weather and am asking you to sponsor me for so much a mile or with a lump sum.

The money will be sent to Open Doors, which is a Christian charity.

Details about Open Doors, about how to sponsor me and more information about our brothers and sisters in India will be displayed at the back of Crosscrake Church. You can also find out more about the Open Doors charity and what it does here.

I have already raised £155 as of 12th September, and would like to raise at least £600, which could help some dozen people. Please come and speak to me after services on Sundays or drop a line via the contact page here on the website and your message will be passed on to me.

Thank you”.

Chirs Day.

Christingle Service at Crosscrake

Christingle Service at Crosscrake

On Sunday 2nd February, we held our Christingle service at St. Thomas’. This service has often taken place during Advent, but it was decided this year to hold it at Candlemass.

The service was enjoyed by children and adults alike. The traditional Christingle oranges were exchanged for gifts of money which were then donated to the Childrens Society.
