Church in Wales Centenary Appeal - 2020

Church in Wales Centenary Appeal - 2020

A Centenary Appeal has been launched to support two charities, one at home and one overseas, to mark one hundred years of the Church in Wales in 2020. The Centenary Appeal aims to raise at least £100,000 over the next five years for Housing Justice Cymru and Christian Aid.

Two specific projects from these charities will be supported.

Housing Justice Cymru will work with churches to develop night shelters for homeless people in the winter months; Christian Aid will support the peace-building work of the Episcopal Church of South Sudan. The Appeal was launched at the Governing Body meeting in September 2019.

Archbishop John calls on people to be as generous as they were one hundred years ago, when another significant appeal was launched. He said, "Back in 1920 we launched an appeal to establish the Church in Wales and parishioners from every church in the country gave so generously that the Church has been sustained for a hundred years.

 

            The Archbishop has said that "This appeal celebrates our birthday by raising money for those in need, both at home and overseas. I am confident that people will respond with similar generosity and enthusiasm. I also ask you to pray for these projects: for those who run them, for the people they will benefit, and for the energy and commitment to use them to build up God's Kingdom of justice and peace, solidarity and compassion."

We plan to have a number of parish and Ministry Area fundraising events to raise as much as we can for the centenary appeal.
