Operation Christmas Child Shoeboxes 2022

Every year we take part in Operation Christmas Child – making up for shoeboxes of gifts for children worldwide. This is the world’s largest children’s Christmas project and is run by Samaritans Purse. It’s a great way to show God’s love in a tangible way to help needy children.

Click here for information on how to pack a shoebox . We also have leaflets available in Church and St Michael’s Centre, as well as some flat pack boxes ( first come first served on the boxes)

And you can also find out more on the Operation Christmas Child Website.

Tougher import regulations mean no toothpaste, chocolate or sweets as shoebox gifts. Let’s think creatively by adding other fun toys, school supplies and hygiene items that a child will love.  You can now include knitted items and 4 suited playing cards. More ideas here

Please drop off your boxes in church or St Michael’s Centre ready for collection by Sunday 20 November.
