St Patrick's Church, Jordanstown, BT37 0NT
Christian Aid’s Supporter Conference each Spring brings our volunteers and supporters from all over Northern Ireland together to inspire, equip and inform ahead of Christian Aid Week in May. Whether you collect, make soup for a lunch, help count the money raised or support Christian Aid in your own way, you are invited!
Our keynote speaker will be Jeanne Kamara, Christian Aid’s Country Manager in Sierra Leone; Jeanne will share first-hand stories of our Christian Aid Week focus project, and how the money you raise could help babies to be born safely and save mothers’ lives.
Keynote speaker: Jeanne Kamara, Christian Aid's Country Manager in Sierra Leone
As usual, we will also have the opportunity to delve a bit deeper with our seminars and there will be resources that you are able to browse and see whether they would be helpful in your church and community.
Our morning begins with coffee at 10am and ends with lunch at 1pm, and during these, you will meet other volunteers. Do chat and encourage each other and share ideas of what’s working in your church.
Please RSVP for catering purposes: firstname.lastname@example.org or call Vicky at 028 9064 8133
