Christian Aid Week 2017

We have marked both the beginning and the end of Christian Aid week this year.
To start the week, our children and young people collected coins from the congregation and used them to cover the Christian Aid symbol. Nicola and Anne led our service on the following Sunday – the end of Christian Aid week – using worship materials shared by Christian Aid.

Christian Aid and Church Action on Poverty teamed up to tour the UK and Ireland in the Tax Justice Bus, in a bright red double decker, for 53 days starting in August 2012 to share the message of tax injustice with churches across the country.

The Tax Justice Bus visited Nottingham on 22nd September – and parked on the pavement outside our church between 3 pm and 6 pm.

Visitors included local MPs, Civic leaders, church leaders and other supporters of Christian Aid.

Christian Aid – City Centre Churches sponsored walk

About a dozen members of our congregation joined the Christian Aid sponsored walk around the city centre churches on 12th April 2012.

Starting at Mansfield Road Baptist Church, the walk followed a similar route to the 2011 walk, ending with a short act of worship at St. Andrew’s with Castle Gate again.

A feature of the walk this year was a guided tour of the St. Barnabas Cathedral in Nottingham given by Father Geoffrey Hunton, the Cathedral Dean.
