Preacher: Fiona Daborn, Regional Co-Ordinator for Christian Aid in Somerset
Readings: Acts 10:44-48 & John 15:9-17
Today we welcome Fiona Daborn from Christian Aid who will preach to us and tell us more about the work of Christian Aid. Ronnie King, who used to work for Christian Aid, will be preaching in the evening. Christian Aid was one of the first charities into Nepal after the earthquake and there will be buckets at the back of church today for us to contribute to the appeal. You will also find a Christian Aid envelope in your Today Sheet. This donation will go to the valuable work undertaken by Christian Aid world wide.
