Sunday 12th May 2019 marks the beginning of Christian Aid Week in the UK.
Rev Ken Chalmers from the Colchester Methodist Circuit led the Family & Parade service at Castle Methodist Church.
We welcomed our Boys’ Brigade company, who brought us a sketch about Noah. They, together with children from our Junior Church, also participated in an activity to help Ken demonstrate his theme of
Oh God! It’s not fair…
where the Boys against Girls were asked to stack cups on a table.
The boys were given much larger cups which made their task easier demonstrating just how in so many ways women are put at a disadvantage in the world.
Christian Aid week 2019 seeks to help redress this in some ways.
