Our Harvest cash collections this year is for ‘The Together in Unity Appeal’ and explained below:

“Behold, how good and pleasant it is when brothers dwell together in unity.” Psalm 133:1

The COVID-19 pandemic has hurt communities throughout the world. Many communities are not equipped with even the most basic of hygiene and sanitation facilities, and lockdown measures have increased economic hardship in the poorest communities with people unable to work. The Archbishop of Canterbury is raising funds to support virus prevention and emergency relief for vulnerable communities throughout our Anglican family.

The Anglican Communion Fund has already begun responding to COVID related needs, allocating over £180,000 across 21 provinces of the Communion. It is supporting the Church in its ministry, providing food relief to the vulnerable, communicating ways of staying safe from the virus, and providing handwashing facilities and PPE.

In the South Sudanese Diocese of Maridi, an ACF grant provided food items, soaps and seeds to over 200 pastors and layreaders and provided bicycles and hand microphones for pastors to carry prevention messages into remote areas. Speaking of the support, Bishop Moses Zungo said, “You held our hand during our most trying moments.” To find out more and to give to the appeal, please visit: archbishopofcanterbury.org/appeal

We welcome donations of fresh and non-perishable food items for distribution around the village and to the Food Bank, please bring them to the Marown service next Sunday and present them during our worship.
