Operation Christmas Child – Our Photos

Operation Christmas ChildSince 1990, more than 100 million boys and girls in over 130 countries have experienced God’s love through the power of simple shoe box gifts from Operation Christmas Child.  Samaritan’s Purse works with local churches and ministry partners to deliver the gifts.

Last year our Pilots group completed several shoe boxes to send to needy children, and this year the whole church was involved, with our young people coordinating the efforts.  They had great fun assembling the boxes, and also shopping for items with money given by the congregation.  A total of 33 boxes were sent from our church, with money accompanying them to pay for transportation costs.

On Sunday 3rd November Jill Bunch came from Fleet Methodist Church to tell us more about the project and to receive all the boxes.  They will be taken to a local collection point, then transported by land to the receiving countries so that children can open them on Christmas Day.

  1. Just wanted to say well done to the Pilots for their hard work shopping and filling the boxes. Also to Bee and her crew for organising the whole event.
    I am sure that the young people receiving these wonderful boxes will be so very happy.
