Clothes start their journey to Iraq for the Winter Clothes Appeal 


The response to the appeal was huge and now all the clothes, shoes, bedding and baby equipment contributed as a church have been loaded into a van today and driven to the UK collection point in Northamptonshire.

Once a lorry’s worth of donations is complete, it takes approximately four weeks to get all of these clothes out to Iraq: approximately a week to deal with the customs formalities and then organise the lorry, then the journey takes around three weeks as the queues at the Turkey/Iraq border are miles long for trucks crossing into Iraq (13km in December).

We saw on Sunday a video showing the scale of God's provison in this operation and so take a look at the relief brought when the packages are recieved to those living in freezing conditions and makeshift homes using the link to Facebook below.
      Thank you for all donations


Psalm 74 v 21 - Do not let the oppressed retreat in disgrace; may the poor and needy praise your name.
