An alternative way of personal giving within churches.

Every day 7,000 units of blood are needed to meet hospital demand, with approximately 225,000 extra blood donors needed each year to maintain consistency. More than 1,000 people die each year in the UK waiting for an organ transplant. The Church, which has a long history of giving and generosity is ideally placed to raise awareness and help to meet the need for blood and organ donation in the UK.

This unique campaign seeks to equip individuals and churches as advocates for blood and organ donation enabling them to raise awareness of this key issue with their family, friends and community and potentially help to save thousands of lives each year.

Sponsored by Give.net and in association with the Church of England, Salvation Army, Methodist Church, United Reformed Church, Baptist Union, Hope and Evangelical Alliance, the fleshandblood campaign marks the first time the NHS has worked alongside the Churches on a national initiative of this kind.

 

 

WORD4WEAPONS
Word4weapons is a Christian, Metropolitan Police supported programme to help rid the local community of knives and guns. Its representatives have spoken at the London District Synod and at an Enfield Circuit Service.

Enfield Circuit readily agreed to underwrite provision of a secure knife box in the Borough.

The word4weapons web site is very informative.

 

 

Mission: Within the Methodist Church

British Methodism has the largest child-care charity in Britain (Action for Children), cutting-edge provision for the elderly (Methodist Homes) and provides aid to the global poor through Christian Aid or the Methodist Relief and Development Fund.Churches in the Enfield Circuit are active in these – and many have direct links (finance, volunteering) with work amongst London’s homeless in the East End – The Whitechapel Mission

Mission: With other local Churches
In Enfield we share in a number of active partnerships with other churches, in the work of Enfield Faith Forum and in local provision of services such as the Children’s Centre at Ponders End

A number of churches are in good neighbour schemes, some support the work of Street Pastors, all exercise care of friend and neighbour and most offer hospitality to community groups, offering premises at reasonable rates

Mission: In this country
We are in times of immense upheaval as the government makes cuts to welfare provision, reduces the size of the public sector by making people’s posts redundant and devolves much of the difficult decision making to local Councils at the same time as drastically reducing the allocation of central funds there. Methodism is not only committed to be alongside those in need, to help in appropriate ways, but also to challenge injustices

Mission: In the World
At the heart of this mission is the conviction that the good news of the way of Jesus should be shared, for Jesus brings new life where people lack purpose and self-worth and don’t know or use the resources God has given them. Strangely, offering yourself to God in Christ, becoming a Christian, means you find yourself!
