Christmas Day Offering - Home for Good

Every year we take up an offering on Christmas Day for a different charity or project. This year I'm excited that our offering will be for Home for Good, the fostering and adoption charity we started to partner with this year.

There are around 6,000 children in the UK waiting to be adopted, and around 9,000 children waiting for places in foster homes. As Christians we know what it means to be adopted into God's family, we have a Saviour who at birth was adopted by Joseph who wasn't his biological father, and we are called by God to have compassion on orphans. All of that should help make adoption and fostering a huge issue for us as Christ followers.

Please think and pray about what to give. All the money raised, plus all the gift aid we recover on the giving, will go directly to Home for Good. If you're not able to be there on Christmas Day then you can give directly to Home for Good here.

Thanks in advance for your generosity,

Simon.
