Christian Aid Week supported by St Paul's collections
06 May 2015
To mark this year's Christian Aid Week, St Paul's will once again be giving its collection money to this vital cause.
At every Evensong service from 10 - 16 May, all collection money will go directly to Christian Aid, as well as all money donated to the Cathedral's collection boxes.
The vital efforts of Christian Aid will also be mentioned during prayers across the week.
Christian Aid Week is Britain’s longest-running fundraising week and has been a firm fixture in the calendar of many thousands of people each year since 1957. It is famous for the distinctive envelope that drops through the letterboxes of millions of homes each May - and for the massive impact that the week has made in the fight to end the scandal of poverty around the world.
To mark this year's Christian Aid Week, hundreds of people will take part in Circle the City, a sponsored walk through the City of London.
Now in its 18th year, this walk is the finale in London of Christian Aid Week. The route includes St Paul's as well as some of the beautiful, and often hidden churches in the City of London.
Everyone is welcome to take part.

A Prayer for an end to poverty:
You loved the world into life.
Forgive us when our dreams of the future
are shaped by anything other than glimpses of a kingdom of
justice, peace and an end to poverty.
you taught us to speak out for what is right.
Make us content with nothing less than a world
that is transformed into the shape of love,
where poverty shall be no more.
Breath of God,
let there be abundant life.
Inspire us with the vision of poverty over,
and give us the faith, courage and will to make it happen.
Through Christ our Lord. Amen.
