The craft group at Christ Church have been supporting Mercy Ships for a number of years. The African Mercy is a huge hospital ship which docks in different ports in Africa. The surgeons on board perform hundreds of operations each year, many cataract, large tumours, and straightening children’s limbs, all giving their services free of charge.

Homemade cards are for sale from the Parish Office Monday – Friday mornings and at Christ Church on Sunday and Thursday mornings.
