Charity of the Month
We support a charity every month through our Lounge and with a monthly retiring collection.
In the year to August 2016 we raised a total of £7,621 (£2,879 from the Coffee Lounge and £4,832 from special collections). Charities that we supported include
Action for Children, BOAZ trust, Christian Aid, Cumbria Community Foundation, East Cheshire Hospice, Methodist Homes, Seashell Trust, ShelterBox, Wilmslow Wells, World Mission and Workaid.
Many church members also participate in the annual house to house collection for Christian Aid.
Churches Together in WIlmslow - Harvest Charity
In conjunction with Churches Together in Wilmslow we support a Harvest charity every year - our contemporary interpretation of the traditional Harvest Thanksgiving.
In 2016 the churches raised over £6,000 to build new sanitation facilities at a school in Nepal where one of our members, Lynn Guy, had volunteered for some months.
In 2014 over £6,000 was raised to fund the shipment of a Workaid container. Workaid collects carpentry, metalwork and mechanics tools, knitting and sewing machines from around the country, refurbishes them and sends them to communities in Africa. Jocelyn & John Fallows have been Workaid area collectors for over 20 years.
