Thankyou to everyone for participating in the Operation Christmas Child Shoe Box Appeal. Last year we distributed around 100 shoeboxes – lets see if we can beat that this year. We’ll let you know how many shoeboxes we end up sending through Samaritan’s Purse.
Samaritans purse is a global Christian Welfare organisation and the Operation Christmas Child project delivers a Christmas gift (your shoebox) along with the good news of Christmas to children in need around the globe.
Each shoebox requires $10 to cover freight and the other costs of the project. You can donate this money online and then print out the label generated in order to track your shoebox on the way to its destination .
This year we’re building a new Church at Wilton (hopefully done by Christmas) and in the meantime our Church service is being held at St Mark’s Anglican Church, Picton. You’re welcome to join us at 5pm for Church any Sunday in Picton to deliver your shoebox, or you could drop it on the Wilton Church verandah, and let us know you’ve left it there. Or contact us to make alternate arrangements.
