Diocesan Poverty and Hope Appeal 2022 launched

First published on: 16th May 2022

For four decades, the Diocese of Rochester's Poverty and Hope Appeal, has allowed us to play our part in tackling the causes and effects of poverty in different parts of the world.

Last year, over £20,000 was raised - thank you.

Launching this year’s Appeal, Bishop Simon invites us to offer our support again, and to be God’s ‘hands and feet’, through our generosity.

“Every gift you make will go to these initiatives, relieving poverty and the fear that stalks it.  God in Christ loves to show his generosity.  And he does this through us. We are his hands and his feet.  And we are also his money.”

Watch his message below.

Working in partnership with three major Christian charities - Christian Aid, USPG and CMS - the Appeal links with trusted and experienced local partners who best understand the needs of the communities in which they work.

This year the money raised will go to fund vital work around the world in support of left behind minorities in Bangladesh, children’s education in rural Myanmar, people living in the Favelas (slums) of Brazil, as well as sustainability projects in three of our companion dioceses, Kondoa and Mpwapwa in Tanzania, and Harare in Zimbabwe.
