Charitable support

MISSION SUPPORT

We aim to donate to external charities on an annual basis, both locally and nationally, and we currently support Queenscourt Hospice and The Leprosy Mission  by taking a collection for each charity on one Sunday in the year.  

                                                                                                                                                                            

Each year we hold a Harvest Supper on the Monday evening following our Harvest Sunday services and the funds raised go to a different Charitable organisation.  In the past we have supported :-

            Toilet Twinning

            Southport Soup Kitchen

            Mercy Ships

            Water Aid

            Save the Children

            Antokia Children's Charity

            Sandpipers     

  

 A small dedicated group of ladies within St Cuthbert's Church hold special events in support of               The Children's Society, including:

a 'Soup and Pie Lunch' (usually in February),

a 'Spring Coffee Morning' (usually in March),

a 'Strawberry Tea' (usually in July)

a 'Coffee and Gingerbread' morning in November

and the Christingle Service in December.

 

 

Church members go out into the Parish in May each year to collect door to door  for         Christian Aid to help those living in poverty throughout the world.   

 

 

In January each year St Cuthbert's hosts a coffee morning, arranged and organised by one of our ladies, and all funds raised are donated to Leukemia research.

 

 

St Cuthbert's Bible Study Group hold a Lentern Tea each year, and funds raised are sent to various overseas charitable organisations. Save the Children

In 2017, the group raised £328 which was sent to Save the Children for work in East Africa. 

 

The church encourages the use of "Fair Trade" products where possible.

 

 

There is a continuous collection of food and toiletry items within St Cuthbert's for the Foodbank at Lakeside Church and to date we have donated 1267.75 kg of goods for needy families in the local area.

 

A number of the ladies from the congregation of St Cuthbert's work with Churchtown Christian Visitors. They provide companionship and social events for older and housebound people in the Parish and local area.  Funds are raised, by way of coffee mornings, to enable them to organise outings each year to local garden centres or similar venues for afternoon tea.  A  very worthwhile local charitable organisation.

Through payment of the church's Parish Share to the Liverpool Diocese, this parish also makes a contribution to the cost of mission and ministry in the many deprived areas which exist in other areas of the Diocese.
