My story

At Stranton Church we have a long standing commitment to, association with and history of support fot Christian Aid, especially during Christian Aid Week which in 2023 starts on 14 May.  

We believe in the equality before God of all people

- No hardworking young person should be forced to give up on education, locking them into poverty.

- We dream of a better world. We want every child to be able to have the education they need to break free of poverty. We imagine a future where crops are not flattened by cyclones and washed away by floods.

- Together, we can help people secure a better future for their families, giving them the chance to fulfill their potential.

With your help, we can make dreams come true around the world. Your Giving to Christian Aid can make these dreams become a practical reality and you can give online (through this link) or by enevelope in Church 

How your money helps

Poverty pushed Aline to the brink. She was abused, homeless and hungry. But Aline pushed back harder. With Christian Aid funded small business training, she achieved what had seemed impossible, a vital income for her and her children.

Fundraising this Christian Aid Week will ensure more people in Burundi get the skills and knowledge they need to push back against the inhumanity of poverty.
