Church collection

Thousands of churches will hold a service for Christian Aid Week. Join them in holding a collection to help support refugees who don’t have a safe place to call home.

We know that the conflict that drives refugee crises is not what God wants for the world. From the Israelites fleeing Egypt to Jesus fleeing Herod, the Bible is full of stories of people seeking sanctuary. 

Again and again, we’re told of God’s concern for the stranger in the land. By holding a church collection this Christian Aid Week, we can play our part in answering God’s call to love our neighbours.

Your church collection could help people like Nejebar

Nejebar fled violence in Afghanistan, but her hopes of a safe, peaceful future for her family feel like a distant dream. They've spent the last six months in a tent in a refugee camp in Greece, huddled together against the wind and rain. 

Use our inspirational worship resources in your church service this Christian Aid Week, and raise money to transform the lives of our neighbours like Nejebar.
