Christian Aid is a Christian organisation that insists the world can and must be swiftly changed to one where everyone can live a full life, free from poverty.
It works globally for profound change that eradicates the causes of poverty, striving to achieve equality, dignity and freedom for all, regardless of faith or nationality and is part of a wider movement for social justice.
It provides urgent, practical and effective assistance where need is great, tackling the effects of poverty as well as its root causes.
Support at Christ Church is by individuals throughout the year and as a particular focus at Lent and Harvest in alternate years.
Often a lunch is held at St John with St Mark
