News from Action for Children (May 24)

Your May District News from Action for Children

Dear friends,

It's good to see Spring gradually emerging; there's something about this season that gives a sense of hope. I look forward to sharing Action for Children's plans for the coming months, and how you can get involved.

We'd like to thank everyone who took part in Count Your Blessings through Lent. We hope the snippets of stories we shared inspired you and showed you how your support makes a difference.

Upcoming events

Action for Children Sunday

Action for Children Sunday is on 14 July and the theme is 'Justice for vulnerable families'. We would be delighted if you can hold a special service to remember our charity on that date or another one. Resources for all-age, children and young people services will soon be on our website here:

New quarterly online forum

On 10 July, we are launching a quarterly online forum for Methodists and other church supporters to hear first-hand about our work and how their support makes a difference. In just under an hour, you can hear interesting updates from our staff who work in frontline services, young ambassadors, and fundraisers. You will also be able to sign up to take part in our petitions and give us direct feedback.

Sign up to get invitations to each forum:

Honouring our Heritage

Join us in June in honouring our heritage by looking at how our residential homes have changed over the years. A lot has changed since 1869, but our ambition – to give children safe and happy childhoods – shines just as bright. Alongside learning about our history, you can enjoy four Bible reflections on the importance and impact of legacy gifts on your own or within a group.

We're blessed to have such loyal and generous supporters stand with us, making our work possible – especially Methodists. So, we are also launching an exclusive offer for you to write your will for free.

All the information will be online here:
