The Christian Aid Service is available from 9 May 2021 at 9am.
This year the theme is Every, Last, Drop.
In Kenya, extreme weather is making it harder and harder to survive. For communities fighting the climate crisis, every last drop matters and every last one of us can help them thrive. The coronavirus pandemic has only increased the urgent need for families to access a reliable source of water. The devastating climate crisis robs people of the water and food they need to live.
Rose walks for six hours to fetch water for her grandchildren. She tries hard to give them the kind of life she remembers from when she was a girl: when the rivers flowed with water and the crops bore fruit. Rose and her grandchildren shouldn’t have to go hungry. A simple earth dam, built with the help of Christian Aid’s partners and your donations, could completely change her life.
This Christian Aid Week, you can be one of the hundreds of thousands of our supporters who give, act and pray to stop this climate crisis driving people like Rose to hunger. Christian Aid Week brings people together as one community against global poverty and injustice.
Carluke Christian Aid Group will not be collecting door to door or having a collection point in Tesco this year, but you can still help.
If you wish to donate using the traditional Christian Aid Envelopes, a small number will be available at the Church door when the church is open (Monday 3.30 – 5.00pm, Wednesday 1.30 – 2.00pm, Sunday 7.00pm). You can collect and return there.
Or you can give safely and securely online to the Carluke Christian Aid group’s Christian Aid e-envelope online here.
Just click on the link and it will take you to the page, otherwise copy and paste the link into your browser.
Carluke Christian Aid Joint Service will be available from Sunday 9th May at 9 am here.
This Christian Aid Week (10-16 May), please:
Give generously to help ensure people like Rose fight this climate crisis.
Act as we call on the UK Prime Minister to lead the world with ambitious climate action that will also address inequality.
Pray for a radical change of heart for politicians, and that as a global community we will care for our common home and for people living in poverty.
Thank you for your continued support Dawn Cunningham and Sheena Stevenson, Kirkton Church, Christian Aid representatives.
