Ukraine Appeal

The Moderator of the General Assembly of the Church of Scotland is encouraging people to donate to charities supporting refugees from Ukraine. More than a million people have fled the conflict and have crossed borders to reach surrounding countries.

 

 

Lord Jim Wallace Moderator of the General Assembly of the Church of Scotland

 

 

"Across the world, people are asking how they can best support the millions of people whose lives have been torn apart by the attack on Ukraine," Lord Wallace said.

"The Church of Scotland, locally and nationally, has been working to support all those affected by the war through prayer, by reaching out to churches in the region, through supporting our partners in the Hungarian Reformed Church Aid emergency response along with charities working in neighbouring countries. We are also urging the UK Government to remove all barriers for refugees seeking sanctuary in our country.

"One of the best and most efficient ways to help is through making a financial donation to the Disasters Emergency Committee," he said.

"If you haven't yet donated, I encourage you to give to the DEC Ukraine appeal and support the work of aid organisations, including Christian Aid, which are working in countries receiving refugees from Ukraine.

"They need our help to welcome the desperate people who have fled for their lives and are now facing cold, hunger and a future filled with uncertainty and fear. Donating to the DEC appeal will ensure your help reaches the people who need it most."

The Disasters Emergency Committee (DEC) Ukraine Humanitarian Appeal will raise funds for member charities to urgently respond to the crisis and supply people fleeing the violence with shelter, food, water and medical support.

Walking humbly with our God

In our acting justly and loving mercy, how do we also walk humbly with our God, as required in Micah 6:8?

This is the question we will journey with through Lent 2022.

In partnership with Eco-congregation Scotland, the Quakers, Young Christian Climate Network, the Church of Scotland and Operation Noah we will work out what it looks like to walk humbly with our God as we continue giving, acting and praying for climate justice.

Fairtrade Fortnight Feb 21st- 6th March 2022

21st February - 6th March 2022

Take part in Fairtrade Fortnight

What is Fairtrade Fortnight?

For two weeks each year, at the end of February and start of March, thousands of schools, colleges and universities across the UK come together to learn from the people who grow our food and drinks, mine our gold and who grow the cotton in our clothes – people who are often exploited and underpaid.

Through learning about how we are all connected through the things we eat, drink and wear, young people are equipped with the knowledge and skills to shape a more compassionate and sustainable world.

Can you help us get the message out even louder this Fairtrade Fortnight? Sign up now to receive an invite to our preview event and be the first to hear about our headline events!

In 2022, our online Choose the World you Want Festival will return from 21 February to 6 March. Last year’s festival saw campaigners, shoppers, students and businesses come together in a show of support for the farmers behind our food on the front line of the climate crisis. From online panels to bake-offs and coffee mornings over 50 virtual events took place as part of our virtual festival, with supporters sharing the power of Fairtrade and what needs to happen next to ensure farmers and workers are put front and centre of conversations on how to tackle the climate crisis. The COVID-19 pandemic has shown us more than ever how interconnected we are globally. This interconnection is at the very heart of the Fairtrade message and is where your role begins. You are part of the Fairtrade movement, and you have the power to drive long-term change, not only with your shopping choices but with your support in spreading the message.
