Everyone Can Bless a Child in Need

Operation Christmas Child is committed to its mission of reaching millions of children across the globe with hope.
The Samaritan’s Purse project has been collecting and delivering shoebox gifts — filled with school supplies, hygiene items and fun toys — to children worldwide for three decades.

We are partnering with Operation Christmas Child as a Church Collection Centre for the area.

Simply pack shoeboxes with school supplies, hygiene items and fun toys and bring them to Church during National Collection Week from the 15th – 22nd November 2021 (opening times below)

Operation Christmas Child, a project of Samaritan’s Purse, seeks to demonstrate God’s love in a tangible way to children in need around the world and, together with the local church worldwide, to share the Good News of Jesus Christ. Since 1990, Operation Christmas Child has collected and delivered more than 178 million gift-filled shoeboxes to children in more than 160 countries and territories.
