'Love your neighbour as yourself.'
Love knows no distance. You’ve picked up the phone, you’ve dropped off food. You have shown your neighbours they are not alone, now is the time to show the same support to your global neighbours. This autumn we have an opportunity to reach out and help more communities living in poverty. Communities where coronavirus has compounded the crises they already face each day. Will your church stand with them?
Global Neighbours Sunday is a way your church can engage with your neighbours near and far. On a Sunday during September or October gather together as a church community and have a service dedicated to Christian Aid’s work with neighbours just like Angela. Why not hold a Brew & Bake coffee morning after church, invite a speaker from Christian Aid to share in your service or use our ready-made worship videos below.
We have created resources to enable your church to hold a Global Neighbours Sunday, either virtually or in person, to celebrate neighbourly love, to pray, act and give in support of communities around the world living in poverty.
