TWO great ways to love our Neighbour this week
The Coronavirus pandemic has had an enormous impact on us but also throughout the world. Some countries are naturally geared up to cope better than others and so we want to encourage you this week to help by supporting two causes with what you can give.
In normal times, this week, thousands of people up and down the country would be collecting door to door for the work of Christian Aid. That can't happen but we can still help. Christian Aid exists to eradicate poverty and at this time are focused on two key appeals - an emergency appeal to support work in affected communities around the world and lobbying the government to postpone debt repayments for the poorest countries during this time.

Guildford Diocese - Emergency Appeal (Sialkot)
Pakistan has had many fewer cases of Covid-19 than here in the UK, but the virus is still hitting the country hard, with lockdowns and a ban on all public gatherings. Sialkot Diocese – and all of its work with churches, school and community projects – is run on a shoestring, and is hugely dependent on income generated from its nine schools; all of which are currently closed.
The Guildford Diocese are seeking to raise £12,000 to support the salaries of the clergy and the staff at the orphanage. If you can, please give online through Stewardship. Type ‘Sialkot’ in donor details to ensure the money goes to this fund. Alternatively, you can transfer money directly to the Friends of the Anglican Communion Fund, CAF Bank Account no.00030397, Sort Code 40 52 40. Again, please indicate Sialkot as a reference.
