World Church Committee

The World Church Committee (WCC) coordinates our church’s work raising money for Christian Aid, selling Traidcraft goods and raising our awareness of issues in the developing world and of mission in the wider world.

The Committee organise fund raising events for Christian Aid and help in organising door to door collections in Christian Aid Week. We now also support Christian Aid through the URC Commitment for Life scheme. The WCC also run a Traidcraft stall after morning worship about once a month and an ocassional Traidcraft evening or fashion show. (We are a “Fairtrade Church”.)

The WCC helps to lead services in One World Week and during Christian Aid Week. They keep in touch with the activities of CWM (the Council for World Mission) and other missionary and international church developments.
