our supporters is critical.

Cathedral's collection boxes.
Christian Aid Week (11-17 May 2014) is Britain’s longest-running fundraising week and has been a firm fixture in the calendar of many thousands

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.
On Sunday 18 May from 1pm (registration from midday), more than 500 people will join the 10km walk to help communities living in war

beautiful, and often hidden churches in the City of London.
