Thanks to the generosity of a City donor we have been able to make £15,000 immediately available to Area Bishops to enable frontline parishes to respond to immediate needs without having to worry about finance.
A number of churchwardens and individual parishioners have been in touch wanting to give and have suggested retiring collections this Sunday.
Anyone who wishes to respond in this or other ways are asked to claim Gift Aid locally and send a cheque payable to ‘London Diocesan Fund’ for the gross amount to Diocesan House (c/o Helen Simmons, 36 Causton Street, London SW1P 4AU) marked ‘Emergency4London’.
This money will be used for immediate contingencies as well as to help parishes in reaching out to young people, and making the love of Christ visible especially to those caught up in gang culture. We are a people of hope and we want our children and young people to grow up with a sense of hope for themselves and for our world.
