The Barrow Benefice has a history of outreach. For years The Living Nativity supported deserving charities. This year the Benefice supported the Bishops’ Kagera Lent Appeal and send more than £600 to the appeal. As of 14 June 2017 the Diocese raised £45,000.00 for the Diocese of Kagera.
Each May the Benefice donates to Christian Aid through a coffee morning and a special collection at the annual Rogation service. We learned this year when the regional representative of Christian Aid spoke at the service that the Benefice has given more that £11,000 over the last ten years. Other charities we have supported include Water Aid, Tearfund, the Children’s Society, EACH and St Nicholas Hospice Care. Three of the churches in the benefice collect canned goods for Tayfen House that are delivered monthly.
We believe that we bring the Good News of God’s Kingdom through our outreach.
