Christmas Charity, 2020: ‘Embrace the Middle East’

St Peter’s has recently committed to conducting two fundraisers over the course of the next year for an organisation called Embrace the Middle East. The first is for our 2020 Christmas Appeal.

With over 160 years of experience, Embrace the Middle East is a Christian charity which helps people of all faiths and none to free themselves from a life of poverty and injustice. Together with local Christian communities, they bring lasting change to the Middle East through healthcare, education and community development projects.

Their Vision is to transform lives and communities in the Middle East by the compassion of Christ.

Their Mission is to partner with Middle East Christians as they bring healing and hope to all who face poverty and injustice.

Please take a look at the website for loads of information about their partnerships across the Middle East, as well as volunteer opportunities, ethical gift ideas and ways to support their great work.

How to give: During Advent and Christmas, there was a basket at the back of church for those who wished to donate via cash or through a white Gift Aid envelope. Donations can still be made directly through the ‘Embrace the Middle East’ website:

We are delighted to say that £715 was raised. Thank you to all who so generously gave over the Christmas period!
