Christian Aid strives for a new world transformed by an end to poverty, and campaigns to change the rules that keep people poor. It is an agency of the churches in the UK and Ireland, working wherever need is greatest – irrespective of religion or race. Christian Aid believes in strengthening people to find their own solutions to the problems they face, and so supports local organisations, which are best placed to understand local needs, as well as giving help on the ground through 16 overseas offices.
Netherlee Church members have been active in the Clarkston and District Christian Aid work over many years, and two representatives from Netherlee sit on the Clarkston and District Christian Aid committee. This is an inter-denominational group involving the congregations of seven local churches.
The Committee organised various events in the area including raising funds during Christian Aid Week in May, the Christian Aid Art Show and the annual sponsored swim.
In addition to these annual events , the Committee are planning some coffee mornings, so please keep your eye out for further information throughout the year.
