Thank you so much for your generous gifts towards our Christmas Appeal.  The appeal this year raised a total of £22,110 — providing support to charities at home and away.

Your generosity this year has provided:

  • Tearfund (in association with Heart for Lebanonwill receive £11,055 (half of the total raised). David Bloomfield came to Above Bar Church on Sunday 14 January to receive the cheque on behalf of Tearfund.
  • Christians Against Poverty will receive £1,995 towards hampers for clients. We have distributed 50 hampers this year to clients who are being supported by CAP to become debt-free. (Read more about our CAP Centre.)
  • Southampton City Mission’s Basics Bank will receive £9,059 to support those in desperate need of emergency food and clothing.

We are confident that these charities will use these gifts to bless those in need this year.
