Alms given and collections taken during Advent and at Carol Services are divided between the church’s chosen charities, which this year are:
XLP (The eXceL Project), based at All Hallows on the Wall in this parish, which creates positive futures for young people living in the inner city, making a serious and sustainable impact on poverty and educational failure. XLP engages with approximately 1600 young people each week on a one-to-one and small group basis and works closely with over 50 schools and on 33 estates across nine of the most deprived inner-London boroughs.
ALMA (The Angola London Mozambique Association) towards the ALMA Angola Schools fund for building additional schools and classrooms in church schools in Angola – including the school St Botolph’s built at St Barnabas, Songo which is now overflowing with many hundreds of pupils.
You will find more information about the charities on posters round the church. Please give as generously as you are able, and Gift Aid your donation if you can.
