In the past, our church family has given generously to Operation Christmas Child. Pre-pandemic most of the activity centred around filling shoe boxes and bringing them to the church centres. During the Covid period much of this activity went online and this year, you can purchase and fill a box on the Samaritans Purse website. It’s easy and it’s fast to do.
But of course you can still fill a shoe box yourself if you prefer. Our nearest drop off points are
PALMERSTON PLACE CHURCH EH12 5AA
BLACKHALL ST COLUMBA’S CHURCH EH4 3QU
MORRISONS FERRY ROAD EDINBURGH EH5 2HF
Please note that National Collection Week is 13–20 November 2023. Filled boxes cannot be accepted outwith these dates.
The mission of Operation Christmas Child is to show God’s love in a tangible way to children in need around the world, and together with the local church worldwide, to share the Good News of Jesus Christ.
Since 1993, more than 209 million children in over 170 countries have experienced God’s love through the power of simple shoebox gifts from Operation Christmas Child.
Visit the Samaritans Purse Website now to find out what to include in your gift. Bring a smile to a child in need this Christmas.
