Online Charity Fundraising Market
As many of you will know, the World Missions Team help the church to raise extra funds for our Tithed Charities by organising fundraising events throughout the year. (in 2019, £5,784 was raised in this way)
Currently our Tithed Charities are Smiles, Tearfund, Mission Aviation Fellowship, Church Army, and Pathways of Chesterfield. Please follow the link to our World Missions section of the site to find out more about them or follow the links above to their own websites so you can get the latest information.
In 2020 however, we have not been able to host any events at all because of the global pandemic, so we are trying to raise funds in a new way. This new 'online gallery' shows many of the items traditionally found at our 'Smiles' Christmas Market. Please browse through and enjoy. All the items will be donated. So all your giving will go to our charities. If you wish to specify which charity you would like to support please do so, otherwise we will create a single fund to share
How to order or buy
If you would like to donate
If you have a crafting skill, which you would be happy to use to make donations to our gallery– please get in touch with one of the World Mission Team. It is our aim to grow and change the gallery through the seasons as St John's rises to the challenge! If you might need to reclaim some expenses, that would be possible too. We would love to see the gallery evolve - perhaps we could offer practical skills/services – hedge trimming etc Please talk to us and let us know your thoughts.
