Mission of the Month for December: The Children’s Society


The Church of England Children’s Society is a leading national charity dedicated to providing vital help and support for the children and young people who are affected by disadvantage and discrimination in their daily lives.

Last year the Society’s Project Workers helped thousands of young people across the country and have changed the lives of millions of young people through its campaigning and lobbying work.

Its campaigning work helps children and young people who:

  • are deprived of love and care

  • are sexually abused by people they trust to care for them

  • are sent to school hungry, left alone in school holidays

  • have mental health issues

  • are disabled

  • and suffer other unimaginable horrors

This is not just an urban problem in London or Oxford – no, it’s likely to be happening here in Faringdon today.


Please see me if you would like to have a collection box in your home. Small change adds up, having one less cup of coffee out and putting the money in the box could add up to £100 on an annual basis.

Your continuing help enables the Society to do its work in reaching out to those in great need. Thanks to your support many young people have been able to access the social, physical and financial resources they need to help them with the issues they face and as a result their lives have been changed for the better.

The Children’s Society celebrates 50 years of Christingle this year. All are welcome to our Saints’ Alive Christingle Service on Epiphany Sunday, 6th January 2019 at 10.30am. There will be an opportunity to support the Society by using the envelopes in the pews for your donations

Most of all, please pray for the work of The Children’s Society and the children and young people they help. Jesus said ‘Let the little children come to me, and do not stop them; for it is to such as these that the Kingdom of heaven belongs’ (Matt.19:14,15).

Very many thanks for your loyalty and support of this worthy cause. For further information of how you can give contact:
