Abbey United Reformed Church, Romsey

Recognition of 70 years work

A service was held at Winchester Cathedral on 30 November 2015 in recognition of 70 years of Christian Aid's work with the poor. The service cleverly summarised each decade's development since 1945, relating each stage to a Bible reading.

Dr Rowan Williams, Chair of Christian Aid, preached on the charity's vision, and how it has evolved into a contract with the poor to challenge and end poverty and injustice. Three specific targets are: to end the tax avoidance so that countries can afford education and health services, to tackle climate change, and to redress all forms of discrimination against women. To this end, Christian Aid and other international agencies are increasingly coming together, both to provide more efficient aid and to provide a louder, more persuasive voice for justice and equality.

Romsey CA Committee can't claim that longevity, but in its own small way it has raised over £285,000 since its founding in 1972.
