This Year’s Shoebox Sunday was on 3rd Dec 2017 – Thanks to all who contributed
On Sunday 3rd December 2017 our 10am service was all about filling Shoeboxes, beautifully wrapped in Christmas paper, with goodies to bless some of the refugees and asylum seekers in our city. Jesus said “it is more blessed to GIVE than to receive.” (Acts 20v35).
