Supporting local and global projects
It is our policy to give at least 10 per cent of our Church income excluding the Government grant to charity each year, including the entire proceeds of our charity fundraising events throughout the year, in addition to occasional special appeals for particular causes. If you would like to nominate a charity, please speak to or email the Convener of the Charities Committee.
A list of some of the causes supported by the church can be found here.
Children and Charity
Every week the children contribute their collection during Junior Church. This goes towards their own choice of charity, currently gifts of farm animals through Christian Aid.
Bishop’s Lent and Advent Appeals
We support the Bishop’s annual Lent and Advent Appeals with special collections in church. During Advent and Lent, details of the Bishop’s Appeal will be posted on the noticeboard outside of the church and on the website.
ACAT – Action des Chrétiens pour l’Abolition de la Torture
ACAT in Luxembourg proposes:
- A monthly appeal to state authorities to end torture situations.
- When necessary, an urgent appeal on behalf of victims of injustice in imminent danger of torture or unlawful killing.
Copies of ACAT appeals are also at the back of the Church.
