As you may know we at St Wilfrids are supporters of Compassion UK with both the church sponsoring a child and quite a number of the church family individuals sponsoring children.

Compassion are putting on a Carol Service on Sunday at 8pm with the details below.

They are also looking for people to take up sponsoring children if that is something you think you would like to do. As well as the concert on Sunday they will be providing us a link to show this concert ourselves through the web site and provide details of children to sponsor, moree information on this will follow.

If you would like to learn more about the sponsoring children I have a number of profiles I can provide.

Please get in touch with me via email

Thanks and God Bless


Message from Compassion UK

God bless you for supporting Compassion during an unexpected year.

As we face a Christmas like never before, we’d like to thank you for your faithful support of Anne.

As a sign of our appreciation, we've partnered with TBN - the world's largest Christian television network - to create Carols with Compassion, It's a Christmas concert for you to celebrate our amazing God and the start of His incredible salvation plan for the world.

Airing on Sunday 6 December at 8pm on TBN UK (Freeview Channel 65 and Sky 582), and streamed from our Facebook page and YouTube channel, Carols with Compassion will feature musical performances from Graham Kendrick, Philippa Hanna, Noel Robinson, the London Community Gospel Choir, Hillsong London, Lurine Cato, Martin Smith and Elle Limebear, alongside readings and performances by Compassion-sponsored children around the world.

There’ll also be a message on the hope found in the Christmas story brought to you by Richmond Wandera, Compassion graduate and senior pastor of New Life Baptist Church, Kampala.

We hope this uplifting concert will encourage and delight you as we celebrate the birth of Jesus together.

You too are encouraging children across the world this Christmas. Your donations will do more than just provide gifts for children living through a global pandemic.

As Compassion's Head of Global Programme, Sidney Muisyo, shares: "When a child receives a Christmas gift, it is something truly special for them. For a child living in poverty, a Christmas gift signifies hope. For many, those are life-changing reminders that reach beyond the Christmas season."

If you haven’t already given to our Christmas Appeal, there's still time. Help us share the hope and joy of Christmas through our church partners and show children they're known, loved and infinitely valuable to God.

Thank you so much for your love and care for children living in great need around the world. Whether we’re facing restrictions or not, may God bless you and your family richly during this Christmas season.

Yours in Christ,
