Christian Aid Week in 2016 begins on Pentecost Sunday, 15 May, and takes as its theme for worship: Love Every Neighbour.
Resources for the week focus on the fragility of life as experienced on islands in the wide rivers of Bangladesh. These islands are made from silt and mud – and so are highly vulnerable to floods and changes in climate.
You can focus your worship around Christian Aid’s theme on the 15th or the following Sunday, 22 May. Explore Christian Aid Week materials – including resources for worship in English and Welsh. (Note – the Order Form allows you to download materials straight away.)
Throughout the year, the Christian Aid website offers regularly refreshed worship materials.
The Methodist Church is one of the sponsoring churches and a founding member of Christian Aid. In 2008, the Methodist Conference affirmed Christian Aid, alongside All We Can (formerly MRDF), as one of its two principal relief and development agencies.
