Operation Christmas Child

Operation Christmas Child Post
This year's deadline for handing in your shoeboxes of gifts for underprivileged children is Sunday November 19th.

Shoeboxes can be brought along to our Sunday services at 7pm on 12th November and 10:45am on 19th November.

Alternatively, you can drop your boxes in to the Baptist Church whenever it is open during the week. This includes Monday mornings (from 10:30am), Tuesday mornings from 9:30am, Thursday mornings from 10:15am and Thursday afternoons from 2pm.

During these times, if the door at the front of the church is locked, then you can go in through the side door and leave your boxes in the small room next to the kitchen, or the table in the church once this has been set up. (Note: the photo below is from last year)

Find out more about how to pack your box on the Samaritan's Purse website. There is a suggested donation of £5 to cover the costs of collecting and transporting the box.
