Over Lent, Switch, the youth group that meets on Sundays at 5.30pm, created Easter crafts to sell and raise money for Lent Event. Lent Event is UnitingWorld’s annual fundraising event, which brings people together to build peace and beat poverty. We would love it if you could purchase one of our craft items to help the cause, which this year is Ambon, Indonesia.
Ambon Island, part of Maluku Province, is one of the poorest regions of Indonesia. One third of its people live on less than a dollar a day. In 1999, a drawn-out conflict between Christians and Muslims killed 5,000 people and left 70,000 homeless. The legacy of the clash has embedded poverty and ongoing resentment. The area is also prone to earthquakes – the latest in September 2019 destroyed homes and left thousands living without power and clean water for months.
You can place an order and either donate directly to Unitingworld or pay us later. You can also have your craft item delivered to your home or we can hold it for you at the Church and you can collect when our services resume.
