Supporting Christian Aid during Lockdown

United Reformed Church Online Consultation with John Plant


This year Christian Aid Week, 10 – 16 May, is focusing on giving people a future without fear. Throughout the week individuals, churches and communities across the country will be helping to raise awareness and money for the work of Christian Aid around the world.  You can find out more about Christian Aid Week 2014 and how you and your church can get involved here.

Are you wondering what to do for Christian Aid Week 2020?

As you know, Christian Aid Week has had to be moved online because of the COVID-19 lockdown. This comes on the heels of significant structural changes at CA, and the furloughing of staff across the UK.

These events have raised questions among some of our URC members.

I would like to invite you to join with me on ZOOM on Thursday 7th May at 14h00. I will host an online consultation with Christian Aid’s John Plant.

John is the National Church Relationships Lead, and a constant source of support for the URC.

John will speak about recent changes at Christian Aid, give updates on our URC global partner regions, and talk about how we might approach this year’s Christian Aid Week. We may have time to take a few questions for John.

We anticipate the event to be around 40 minutes. We may have a ZOOM imposed limit on the number of participants, but there is a facility to phone in (see details below) if you are unable to log in on your computer/ laptop/ iPad/ mobile camera.

All URC members are welcome.
