Neston and District Christian Aid Committee

The local Christian Aid committee is part of Neston and District Churches Together (NDCT), which represents the churches in Burton, Little Neston, Neston, Parkgate and Willaston.

Members organise:

  • a sponsored walk in March

  • collection at Gordale at Christmas and during Christian Aid Week

An ecumenical service is held in a local church during Christian Aid Week.

Christian Aid’s motto is ‘We believe in life before death’. They work in 50 countries through local organisations to deliver direct, practical benefits, and campaign to challenge the causes of poverty. A detailed description of the aims and work of Christian Aid is here
