St Mary Redcliffe Lent Appeal 2019
Each year St Mary Redcliffe chooses a charity to support for its Lent Appeal. The Lent Appeal is an opportunity not simply to raise funds but also to build new relationships and raise the profile of a charity not just among our members but across Bristol.
Could your charity be our partner for 2019?
In 2018 we worked with Unseen and raised over £5,000 to support their work to end modern slavery. A major focus was informing our church community and visitors to the church about modern slavery – how to spot it and how to act. Our target was to reach 1,000 people which we succeeded in through our exhibition, services, events and media interviews. The exhibition in church gave a voice to survivors of modern slavery through exhibiting their artwork and telling their stories.
We are now planning our 2019 Lent Appeal. Lent will be from 6th March to 19th April.
We are seeking to work in partnership with a charity that:
• Benefits people in the Bristol area;
• Has representatives in or near Bristol who have the capacity to work closely with us on the Appeal;
• Will make use of our church’s potential as a venue for events and exhibitions, to attract support from across the city and beyond.
If your charity fits these criteria, we would love to hear from you. Please fill out the form below and we will be in touch.
If you would like us to consider a charity you support or are involved in, please share this page with someone appropriate in the charity to complete and return the form to Rev’d Kat Campion-Spall by 8th October 2018.
If your charity is shortlisted we will invite you to meet with representatives of the church to make a short presentation about your work, and to have a conversation about how we could work together on the Lent Appeal.
We look forward to hearing from you.
