Why?

Jesus commanded us to love God and to love our neighbour.

In 1 John 4 verse 20 we read, "For anyone who does not love his brother, whom he has seen, cannot love God, whom he has not seen.

 

These pages give some idea of the ways we try to fulfil that command

 

 

Mother Teresa tells us how we can love God whom we have not seen:

Where is God?
We believe He is everywhere---He is the creator, He is everything.
But where is He to my human eyes?
To make it possible for me to see the face of God with my human eyes, He has made Himself the hungry one, the naked one, the homeless one, the lonely one and He says: ‘Whatsoever you do to the least of My brethren you do it to Me.’ (
The Joy in Loving)

 


Fairtrade
 
Fairtrade®Christ Church Walmersley is a Fairtrade Church so Fairtrade tea and coffee are served at all church events. Opportunities are taken, particularly during Fairtrade fortnight, to raise awarness and support the efforts to alleviate poverty in developing nations.
 
 

At Harvest we also give thanks for God's goodness to us by visiting the sick and housebound with gifts of flowers and plants. Alternately each year we give thanks for the work of Christian Aid and Tearfund.
