Operation Christmas Child: An Update1 minute read

As in other years, we supported the annual Operation Christmas Child appeal this year. We would like to thank all our families and staff who managed to put together an amazing 56 boxes.

Since 1990, Operation Christmas Child – an initiative of the Christian relief and development agency Samaritan’s Purse – has been blessing underprivileged children around the world with gift-filled shoeboxes wrapped and packed by children and adults in the UK.

It’s a campaign that thousands of schools, churches and other organisations from across the UK get involved with between the September and November each year. In fact, it is now the UK’s largest children’s Christmas appeal.

These shoebox gifts are an expression of God’s love to us, and the gift of His Son Jesus at Christmas. They give us the opportunity to show God’s love to children in a tangible way and to share the Good News of Jesus Christ: The Greatest Gift.
