On Sunday, Bryn launched Thornhill Church’s Operation Christmas Child gift box appeal. Operation Christmas Child is the world’s largest children’s Christmas project, delivering shoe boxes packed full of toys and practical gifts to children in need across the globe.
Operation Christmas Child’s mission is “to show God’s love in a tangible way to children in need around the world, and together with the local church worldwide, to share the good news of Jesus Christ.”
If you’d like to join in with filling a shoe box (or lots of shoe boxes!), then pop along to the Thornhill Church Centre over the next few weeks where you’ll be able to pick up a spare box or two, and a leaflet packed with ideas for items that would make a great gift for the child who receives your box.
We will be holding a special “Sending Off Service” at 4pm on 18th November 2018, where you can bring along your gift shoe boxes ready for us to take them to the shipping warehouse, and see and hear some stories of how the boxes sent in previous years have made such a huge difference.
